I have written about this a in the past months, but there is a thread through John that we need to pull that may be instructive to our faith.
Look at these passages:
- John 2:18
- John 4:48
- John 6:30
- John 12:37
- John 14:8
We see in the passages above that those who saw the signs continually asked for more. Even Philip in John 14:8. This is how we are is it not? We want tangible proof that God is who He says He is. If He will just ________ I will believe… Usually, that ___________ is something that we want, it is not focused on Him or His glory.
In 2 Corinthians 5:7 I wonder if Paul has this reality in mind. We want a sign, Jesus wants us to walk with Him by faith.
What are you depending on to validate your relationship with God? Signs or faith?
