Less Disbelief


“Still they stood there in disbelief, filled with joy and wonder”
Luke 24:11 (NLT)

There were reports that Jesus had risen from the dead and the disciples found it very disturbing. It was one thing to see Jesus raise Lazarus from a tomb, but Jesus from the crucifixion? He was so dead. His death so brutal, so hateful, and now they feared for their own lives. Perhaps the most disturbing was the “How?” questions echoing in their heads. “How could some one who loved so much, die so despised? How could someone so supernatural die so naturally? And so they did not believe. Even when Jesus “showed up” in the Upper Room, they stood there in disbelief, filled with joy and wonder. We are the same way. We hear of a miracle, or witness one, and don’t we react with disbelief and wonder at the same time? Where did this unbelief come from? We need to be more like the man who Jesus said, “Everything is possible for one who believes.” The man turned to Jesus and said, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”
Today, let’s choose to have less disbelief and more joy and wonder.

Father, forgive me for my unbelief. Help me be filled with more joy and wonder at all You are and do. In Jesus’ name.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
