Thomas was getting all upset because he didn’t know where he was going. He knew that Jesus was the Way to get there . . . but he didn’t know what the destination was. And that was bothering him.
And I suppose we can relate to that. You know, if we’ve ever planned anything—from a career, to family, to a vacation—we probably had an idea of where we were going. We like to plan; we like to know what’s up ahead. It’s why we don’t like to drive behind semis; you can’t see what’s coming. And we can get upset when our view is blocked.
But Jesus says to Thomas (in so many words): I’ve already told you where we’re going, but don’t worry about it anyway—just follow me.
And Jesus says to us (in so many words): Don’t worry about where you going, and what’s up ahead. Just follow me. Sit back and enjoy the ride through life; don’t worry . . . I’ll get you to where you need to be. You have faith in God . . . have faith also in me.
