“Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.”  John 20:28-29.

A friend once told me, “I’m open to the idea that their might be a God but I’ve just never seen anything to convince me that God exists.”  Even believers,  myself included, have been guilty of searching, or even asking God, for some physical sign that He is with us. But Jesus doesn’t simply ask us to believe without physically seeing Him, rather he tells us we are blessed to do so!  We are blessed in knowing that we are not bound by our bodily senses and the materials if our world.  It is in recognizing that we are free from the physical body and world that we can move into deeper union with Christ and experience His presence in our lives.   Let us celebrate this spiritual liberation!
