Again Jesus appeared.
Then he said to Thomas, " Put your finger here and see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it in my side. Do not doubt but believe." Thomas didn't have to do anything but look, in order to be convinced. He fell to his kness and cried, "My Lord and my God!"
Jesus acknowledged Thomas' faith that had come through experiencing the evidence. But he made the pronouncement that there would be even greater blessing for those who could commit themselves without first having a demonstration.
