Matthew 28: 16-18

Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go.  When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted.  Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.”

Jesus understands the human condition, and the state of His disciples’ hearts very well.  When they see Him and fall to worship, some have doubt.  The Amplified Bible says ” He broke the silence” and spoke to them.

On the mount of Transfiguration when the disciples were overwhelmed by the presence of God and the appearance of Moses and Elijah, they fell to the ground, afraid.  Jesus spoke to them, “Do not be afraid”, and He touched them.  (Matthew 14: 25-31).  There was doubt, but there was also the voice of the Lord, and His hand reaching out.

So…our fear, our doubts, our questioning do not put God off; instead, from His inexhaustible mercy, He reaches out to assure us.
