Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
The Greek word for “blessed” here, means” to pronounce happy or blessed”. Jesus did not hesitate to confirm Thomas’ belief by showing Thomas His hands and feet. He also does not hesitate to pronounce that we are blessed and happy for believing without seeing.
Remember, when we are longing for the fulfillment of our faith, when our desire is to be done with this world, that Jesus has pronounced us happy an blessed even as we wait.
