Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are the people who have not seen and yet have believed.”—John 20:29 NET
The seen are shadows: the substance is found in the unseen…. No doubt, in Christ, the foundation of our faith is unseen; but so is that of yonder tower that lifts its tall erect form among the waves over which it throws a saving light. It appears to rest on the rolling billows; but, beneath these, invisible and immovable, lies the solid rock on which it stands secure; and when the hurricane roars above, and breakers roar below, I could go calmly to sleep in that lone sea tower. Founded on a rock, and safer than the proudest palace that stands on the sandy, surf–beaten shore, it cannot be moved. Still less the Rock of Ages! Who trusts in that is fit for death, prepared for judgment, ready for the last day’s sounding trumpet, since, “The Lord redeemeth the soul of His servants, and none of them that trust in Him shall be desolate.” — Guthrie.
