But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.
As you read through John’s Gospel of Jesus, there is an underlining purpose and message that John wants every reader to know. John’s conviction and testimony states there is no other name by which we can be saved.
John is clear to present the truth of Jesus Christ being our Redeemer and Savior. It is only through Jesus alone that one can obtain eternal life.
Jesus performed various signs and wonders that we call miracles. Miracles were a sign for all to believe in Jesus as the Messiah. The blind were given sight, the lame were made to walk, the dead came alive, but most importantly sinners were forgiven of their sins.
Jesus’ purpose in coming down from Heaven was to save sinners but the people who encountered Jesus wanted more. So Jesus gave them miracles to prove to them He was the Messiah. The problem is, some still didn’t believe Jesus was the Messiah.
You may recall Thomas, who was a disciple of Jesus, wouldn’t believe unless he saw the nail print in His hands and put his finger into His side (John 20:25). And after Jesus allowed him to do so, He said, “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” (John 20:29)
Today, we don’t need signs or miracles to prove that Jesus is the Son of God and the true Messiah. We have the written Word of God and that is all that we need. The Bible reveals to us all we need to know about Him.
Instead of praying for a sign from heaven, just believe that Jesus is all that you need and by believing in Him you have all that you need.
Lord, You have spoken to me through Your written Word and You have revealed Yourself to me. Let my heart fully understand that You are all that I need. Let my heart and meditation be upon You.
