Memory Verse: 2 Peter 1:8.

Remember as you read to underline key words and phrases, and ask the 5 Ws and an H (who, what, when…). Ask yourself: What do these verses mean? Why is this important? How does it apply to MY life today?

You may want to record your thoughts in a notebook or journal — or share them here!

Wednesday in the Word: (mini post)

Talk about “too good to be true!” Thomas said he wouldn’t believe it. Not til he saw it with his very own eyes.

And then Jesus was standing there, right in front of him, inviting him to put his fingers in the wounds in His hands and His side — and see for himself that it was true.

Then Jesus said, “Because you have seen Me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet believed.” (John 20:29)

That’s you and me.

It reminds me of a scene from “Prince Caspian,” the sequel to “The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe” by C.S. Lewis. In the story, a small remnant of Narnian creatures eagerly await deliverance from the foreign oppressors who conquered their ancestors. These true believers have been driven underground for hundreds of years, during the occupation of their homeland. Some begin to lose hope that they will ever be free again.
