What Thomas Wants
Thomas knows all about crucifixion.
|No, what Thomas wants to see
is the Lord who rises from
death by crucifixion,
from the worst that our world can do:
from hells of corruption and cruelty,
from violence and terror and hate,
from rape and torture and war,
from hunger and disease and squalor,
torn and terribly scarred
yet walking among us still,
who will touch us in
who will hold us in
who sees in us
the prints left by the nails,
who will put his own hurt hand upon
our heartache, fear and despair
and breathe his healing peace
into our souls.
This is who Thomas wants to see – the only
Lord he wants to believe in.
Thomas just wants to see

May we too want to see Jesus like Thomas.
