Jesus Stories

Jesus Returns

The women had told the apostles that Jesus was not there.

She told them what the angel had said.

The apostles were very surprised.

That evening the apostles were eating dinner.

The doors were locked.

They heard someone say, "Peace be with you."

The apostles turned to see who was speaking.

It was Jesus!

They were so happy.

Thomas was a friend of theirs.

When they told Thomas what happened, he didn't believe them.

Thomas said, "I won't believe it until I see it."

Eight days later all the apostles, including Thomas, were there.

All the doors were locked.

The men were talking.

"Peace be with you," Jesus said.

Thomas was amazed!

He believed now.

Jesus told him, "You believe because you see.  Blessed are those who believe and don't see."

What do you think?

Did you think Jesus could get in through the locked door?

Did you think Thomas should have believed?

Would you have believe ?

Would you have needed to see to believe?

Write and tell me what you think, BUT, ask your parents first.

Lets Pray:
Dear God,
Thank you for always being there for me.
Thank you for always believing in me.
Help me to never doubt.
Help me to always have faith.
Thank you for Your Blessing.
This I ask through Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Can you think of a better prayer?
