Thomas was a disciple who was passionate about following Jesus - even to the point of death (John 11: 16) - but whose expectations were badly crushed by the Cross. Disappointment can similarly deal us a cruel blow, especially if we have high expectations about something, but God has a bigger, better plan for our lives. Clive Ozzard (Father's House, Shaftesbury) compares Thomas' experience to the disappointments that we sometimes suffer, concluding that Thomas, far from being a doubter, actually gained a stronger faith through his disappointment. There's a great lesson here for all of us in Clive's talk.
