Doubters Welcome
Luke 24:36-49

1. He gives peace when I am wavering.

While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” Luke 24:36 (NIV)

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
Romans 5:1 (NIV)

2. He gives spiritual understanding when I am seeking.

As he spoke, he held out his hands for them to see, and he showed them his feet. Still they stood there doubting, filled with joy and wonder.
Luke 24:40-42 (NLT)

Then he asked them, “Do you have anything here to eat?” They gave him a piece of broiled fish, and he ate it as they watched. He said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.”
Luke 24:43-44 (NIV)

When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted.
Matthew 28:17 (NIV)

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13 (NIV)

Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. He told them, “This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
Luke 24:45-47 (NIV)

3. When Jesus gives understanding I should respond with gratitude and love.

When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed them. While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven. Then they worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy. And they stayed continually at the temple, praising God.
Luke 24:50-53 (NIV)
