The prescription for doubts

‘Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshipped him; but some doubted’. This intriguing verse precedes the great commission. What a shock to find doubt on a mountaintop in Galilee, with that first Easter Sunday so fresh in memory. Here are first hand witnesses, doubting! The bible is so honest. Listen to the treatment Jesus prescribes for them and all of us who struggle with our own doubts: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you”. Invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and his church and when we do that we know that God goes with us.
