SERMON: “Believing Thomas”(John 20:19-31)

download“Doubting Thomas”! What a way to be remembered?

In recent years, I have been gripped each time I read this story, not so much by the doubts of Thomas but rather by the transition that takes place in his life; the transformation we see in this passage from an individual who is wrestling with questions and not quite knowing where he stands in this matter of faith – to one who boldly declares and confesses Christ. What happens in the space of three short verses v 25 to 28 that births this miracle of belief in the heart of Thomas?

Listen along (by clicking player below) as we explore Thomas’s journey…(I preached this sermon at St John’s Lutheran Church on Sunday 3rd April 2016). God bless you!



Hi. My Name is Wayne. If I were to introduce myself by what I have done, work-wise, I would have to introduce myself as a Preacher, a Pastor, a Family & Community Worker, a Student, an Air Traffic Controller, a Post Office Counter Assistant, a Mail Sorter, a Unit Trust Administration Officer, a Butchery Delivery Driver, a Teacher. These are some of the various positions I have held to-date over my lifetime. The periods I have occupied these roles for range from a few hours to a few years. More important than introducing myself by what I do (or have done), allow me rather to introduce myself by who I am. I am a Born Again Christian (who treasures his Lord), a Husband (who treasures his wife), a Dad (who treasures his sons) and a Minister of the Gospel (who treasures the Word of God). I pray that whatever is posted on this site will serve to bless and encourage you.
