Verse of the Day

Then Jesus said to him, “Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will by no means believe.” [John 4:48 – NKJV]

Miracles do exist in the 21st century. There is no doubt that God can and does perform miracles all around us, but we don’t always see them or believe them. Even today, the best known miracles are those performed by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

There is a difference in how the Gospel writers portray and interpret Jesus’ miracles. The first three Gospels—Matthew, Mark, and Luke (generally referred to as the “Synoptic Gospels” because of their commonality) merely record Jesus’ miracles. Whereas the Gospel of John refers to His miracles as “signs” and attributes to each of them a special spiritual significance which points towards a different aspect or characteristic of Jesus. This is in keeping with John’s purpose of proclaiming Jesus’ deity, i.e., that He is the Son of God. And to make sure that there is no room for doubt, John tells us that “…these [signs] have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name” (see John 20:31).

Do you believe?
