Friday April 12th, John 20: 24 Now Thomas (called Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, "We have seen the Lord!"  But he said to them, "Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it."  The one who showed enough guts to not be behind the locked doors is the one who gets blamed for not believing what the others still weren’t sure they believed.  After all, Thomas came back.  And where did he come back to?  He came back to the room with the locked doors with the disciples still behind the locked doors after seeing Jesus who told them to go out there and forgive.  Ironic isn’t it!  Things haven’t changed much, even today there is a tendency to blame the victim.  You have a chance for something different though, for now Jesus’ words go out to you.  See the holes where the nails were?  Good!  Receive the Holy Spirit, it’s your turn.  Get going outside those walls and be the church!!
