“Jesus answered, I did tell you, but you do not believe. The works I do in my Father’s name testify about me, but you do not believe because you are not my sheep.” John 10:25-26
Some people came to Jesus during a festival and asked Jesus to tell them directly if He was the Messiah. Jesus tells them that He had already told them but they refused to believe the answer. He tells them to look at the works He has been doing. They refused to believe because they were not really His sheep.
Since Easter has just passed, the question of who Jesus really was has come up a lot. Every year many news articles are done asking that very question.
The world is more than willing to debate who Jesus was. The only thing that they seem to agree with is that He was a very good person. Beyond that He was nothing but just another man.
Many see, with their physical eyes, the miracles Jesus had done or is doing today, yet, they do not see it with their spiritual eyes. They cannot see that those miracles recorded in the Bible and those happening today are a result of who Jesus is.
Jesus was the one who said He will save you if you believe in Him. How many times does a person work at being “good” enough to be saved? People state that they want to believe in Jesus, yet, they do not. They often want more proof of who He is.
In order to believe in Jesus as the Messiah, you must be willing to listen to His voice. You must know His voice. You must know who He is. In all of this you must believe what you know about Him.
Do not keep asking Jesus for more proof of who He is. Look at all the evidence that is already there. Look at the proof that is presented in your own life.
Don’t just look for more miracles. Act upon what you know about Jesus. Trust and obey Him. Show that you believe in Him. Be one of His sheep today.
I pray today that God will open your eyes to who Jesus is; that you will know His voice; that you will obey Jesus; that you will see the works Jesus has done in your life; and that you will tell others of who Jesus is.
