The following message was given at the 2017 ICC Summer Retreat by Pastor Young Kim from Grace Covenant Church in Philadelphia. However, we apologize that due to the poor quality of this recording we are unable to post this first session. Please click READ MORE below to see the sermon notes.
Now Thomas, one of the twelve, called the Twin, was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see in his hands the mark of the nails, and place my finger into the mark of the nails, and place my hand into his side, I will never believe.”
Eight days later, his disciples were inside again, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.” Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
Doubting Thomas was most active in the area East of Syria. Marthoma Christians declare him as the founder of their faith.
Evangelized Spain and India and created the Marthoma church. Thomas was martyred in India.
Would you want to be known as Doubting Thomas?
1st place of revival is HONESTY
You don't have doubts because you don't want to go forward.
Jesus does not want to reject those that doubt! He wants to be near. He wants to be close.
"My Lord and My God"
Am I going to really finish this race? (Strongest doubt)
