Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 279

  1. “They have seen these miracles, and yet…” (John 15:24).

Seeing isn’t always believing. Clearly, in the experience of Jesus on earth, many saw the miracles He did without believing in the claim He made–that He is, in fact, the Son of God. We often want to think that a miracle or two will stir sudden church growth. Such an event may spur an attendance spike, but much as we see with crisis moments, the response is short-term and often fails to produce real faith. Miracles don’t generate faith by themselves. Instead, it is what one sees in the miracle–namely the evidence of God–that cultivates the response of faith. As Jesus points out in these verses, those who have seen and do not believe are left barren before God and without an excuse for their sin.
