Thomas – Our Man at the Resurrection

Passage: Acts 5:27-32,Revelation 1:4-8,John 20:19-31

The Joy of Easter continues this week, as we emphasize resurrection, rebirth, renewal, and resuscitation! Forgiveness and peace are recurring themes, linked together as cause and effect. Jesus can pass through locked doors, but retains the scars of his death. How Christ is the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end is played out before us. Easter is the beginning (alpha) of eternal life, and the abiding presence of Jesus’ Holy Spirit spells the completion (omega) of each believer. And everyone is changed—Thomas, Peter, John…you and me!
