Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 92

92. What miraculous sign then will you give that we may see it and believe (John 6:30)?

Sadly, the signs don’t always bring faith. Those who are determined not to believe always need more proof. They that must be convinced by the miraculous can always find a reason to discount the miracles they have already seen. Here, the people ask for a sign and just yesterday, He has fed thousands of them from a little boy’s lunch. They even go on to say that Moses proved himself with manna, as if He’ll need to feed them for several years before they will put Him in that league. Our response to a miracle can reveal our level of self-centeredness. When we refuse to believe, we realize that in matters of faith, seeing isn’t believing. But for those who choose to see, the evidence is overwhelming.
