- Even after Jesus had done all these miraculous signs in their presence, they still would not believe in him (John 12:37).
What at first seems surprising really isn’t. We often want to think that miracles will induce faith, but many won’t believe even if they see. Why? Because their hearts are not open. When one’s posture is to reject, no amount of conflicting information will change the mind. We place what we see inside the framework of what we believe. We reinterpret the obvious to match our preconceptions. In other words, we see what we think. Only those who are willing to believe, who are actually looking for a Savior, will find One in the miracle before them. All others will find a reason not to believe their eyes.
