Faith or Doubt

Matthew 28:17. When they saw him, they worshiped him, but some doubted.

As many times as the saw Jesus during those 40 days some were still doubting.  The doubters were among the worshipers.  That is still true today.  There are many doubters in our churches.  There are many doubters who claim to be Christians.  Occasionally doubt can sneak into the mind of any believer.  The disciples were still without the witness of the Holy Spirit.  We don’t have that excuse.  When we find doubt trying to invade our mind we must put on the full armor of God. (Ephesians 6:14-16)  Stand firm therefore, by fastening the belt of truth around your waist, by putting on the breastplate of righteousness, by fitting your feet with the preparation that comes from the good news of peace and in all of this, by taking up the shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Belief is a choice.  Job is a good example when he said, “though He slay me yet will I trust Him,”. Our question is do we choose faith and trust or will we feed on doubt?  Is faith what others hear coming from our mouth or do we feed doubt by giving them voice?
