But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and the at 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 we 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.
You may recall Thomas, a disciple, he 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 necessarily 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 that we need to know about Him.
Does the Bible mean everything to you?
Lord, You have spoken to me through Your written Word and You have revealed Yourself to me. Let my heart fully understand what You want me to know.
