Devos of the Week: John 20:27

“Reach out your hand and put it in my side. Do not doubt but believe.”  Jesus does not scold Thomas. Instead he gives him the evidence he needs and gently invites him to believe.  In response, Thomas speaks one of the greatest affirmations in Jesus ever recorded.  How do we as leaders deal with those who doubt our plans and strategies for ministry and for change? What might Jesus’ dealing with Thomas teach us?  It is easy to grow discouraged with those who don’t agree with me Lord. Teach me, by Your Spirit, to respond with patience and grace.
