A question for adults to ask children:
Why do you think Jesus did not reveal who He was at first?

When Jesus met with Thomas after he had risen he said “Those who believe without seeing me will be truly blessed,”and in 2 Corinthians 5:7 we are encouraged to “live by what we believe, not by what we see.” Jesus wanted the two followers to know he was alive not just because they had seen it, but because they knew it in their hearts. In Luke 24:32 they say that hearing Jesus explain the Bible was like having a fire burning in their hearts. Even though we cannot see Jesus we can still believe that He is alive and read the Bible – why not ask God to help you experience God’s word like a fire today!
