Day 10- Matt. 28

Here is your catch up day!!  You only have one chapter to read, so if you are behind, this day can help. Do you have any thoughts on your reading?

Don’t you find it odd that 28:4 says the soldiers were so afraid of the angel that they shook and became like dead men, but then in verse 15 they took a bribe to lie about what had happened!  Wow!  How sad!!  They got a glimpse of what others longed to see, and they gave up all that comes with that, for money.

I also found it interesting that (I am assuming it was the 11), still had doubts as they worshipped Jesus on the mountain in Galilee. 28:17. 

These examples of disbelief and doubt highlight to me how hard hearted we people can be!  For heaven sake; seeing an angel in person, seeing Jesus in person and still having doubts?!!!......
There are some that believe easily.  Jesus says they are blessed (John 20:29).  But that doesn’t let others, who have a harder time believing, off the hook.  They have work to do.  And this is it~ 
John 6:30, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”

Thankfully, we see that Jesus can use us even in our doubts, just as he used all 11 of those disciples!
