Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but
believing.” And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed.
Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” 
John 20:27-29

Doubt Not

Doubt not, Thomas.
Behold love’s scars
in hands,
in feet,
in side.
He lives who once had died.

Doubt not, Christian.
Behold these prints
in Temple resurrected
your forgiveness
have perfected.

Doubt not, Christian.
Behold this pledge
of body, bread,
blood, and wine
confers God’s grace
divine.

Doubt not, Christian.
Behold the Prince
of Peace,
of Love,
of Life
has spoken:
“With Me you’ll be
in Paradise.”

From: And Then, Eternity—Poems From a Pilgrim on the Narrow Way, by Chad M. Seybt
