Mercy Sunday message: God loves us at all times

Even if or when we doubt as Thomas did, God relentlessly calls out to us

"Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands and put my finger into the nail marks and put my hand into his side, I will not believe." ~ Thomas the Apostle (John 20:25, part of Sunday's Gospel)

Oh, Thomas. Who among us hasn’t had a split-second of doubt especially when life is cruel or doesn’t make any sense. Thankfully, Jesus is relentless in his pursuit of us. Mercy Sunday calls our attention to all that Jesus gives us:

  • “Peace be with you”
  • “Receive the Holy Spirit”
  • “Do not be unbelieving, but believe”

Today, how will my life reflect Thomas’ concluding words: “My Lord and my God!”
