Sheep scattered by the crucifixion began to return with news of the resurrection.  Thomas moves from unbelief to faith as did the rest of the eleven.  Being gripped by the resurrection changed their view of reality.  It will change our apathy and indifference toward the gathered Christian community, the very place He most often appears.  It is time for the scattered to gather.  He desires to be present with you, his disciple.

“Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world” John 17:24 (NASB).
