Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
Message – Well Christmas is over and a New Year lies before us. But before the sounds of Christmas fade once again from our ears, I want to ask one last time, the question we have been asking all during this season, Who is Jesus Christ?
That is the question of the ages and the one questions that determines your destiny and mine. If Jesus Christ is not who He and millions of his followers have claimed He is, God incarnate in the flesh, then there is no hope of sins forgiven and eternal life in heaven. But if He is, and if you will place your hope and your trust in Him alone, then we have His promise, “I give unto them eternal life, and they shall never perish.”
Thomas, one of Jesus own disciples agonized over that question until he saw the risen Christ with the nail prints of His crucifixion still in His hands. Listen to His testimony as we close this year, “Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.”
Jesus has a word for Thomas, He said, “Thomas, because thou hast seen me, you have believed: blessed are those who have not seen, and yet have believed.”
Thomas got it right – perhaps Jesus is waiting for those words from your lips, “My Lord and my God.”
