Psalms 61,62, 68, Romans 1:16-31, John 4:43-54 "Unless you see signs and wonders you will not believe." –John 4:48 Jesus said these words to the people of Cana. Do they ring true for us today? Is our faith shaken unless we see signs and wonders? At times we cry out to God for miracles, and we don’t get the sign we long for. It may concern our pain or the pain of those we know and love. It may concern our agenda, what we are sure we or the world needs at a given time. In John’s Gospel account, Jesus’ performs only a handful of miracles. They are all pointed and specific to showing us who he is; the true light of the world, God incarnate. The person of Jesus John portrays is very relational, inviting all he encounters to come to know him, to love him, and be loved by him. Perhaps today we can focus on Him, and the relationship he invites each of us into. Rest this day in his presence, and see if his presence doesn’t strengthen your faith and give you his peace. Pray today’s Psalms (61, 62, 68) as a way of being in the presence of our almighty Lord and Savior who loves and cherishes you more than anyone on this earth ever could, and welcomes you into his loving arms.
