Fighting Against Doubt (John 20:24-29)Pastor Justin Pratt, September 10, 2017
Part of the Stand Up and Fight! series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
One of the Disciples went down in history as a naysayer, a skeptic, a pessimist. He wanted proof of claims. He spoke up in skepticism. You know him as Doubting Thomas.
But Thomas had himself a red-letter day. He overcame his doubt, and when faced with a resurrected Jesus, he confessed Him a Lord and Savior. If Thomas can overcome his doubting nature, then surely we can too.

24But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. 25The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. 26And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. 27Then saith he to Thomas, reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. 28And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. 29Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
