Signs & Wonders Win the Lost

Signs & Wonders Win the Lost

Did you know that when unsaved people see and experience signs, wonders, and miracles performed in the name of Jesus, that it wins many hearts to Jesus Christ?

Then many of the Jews who had come to Mary, and had seen the things Jesus did, believed in Him.  (Joh 11:45)

Now when He was in Jerusalem at the Passover, during the feast, many believed in His name when they saw the signs which He did.  (Joh 2:23)

And many of the people believed in Him, and said, “When the Christ comes, will He do more signs than these which this Man has done?”  (Joh 7:31)

Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know—  (Act 2:22)

God also bearing witness both with signs and wonders, with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to His own will?  (Heb 2:4)

As we read these passages of Scripture shown above, we can easily see that human beings consider signs, wonders, and miracles to be a confirmation and a witness from God that Jesus is, indeed, the Son of God and the Savior of mankind.

How can we, who are alive in 2020, turn up our noses at signs and wonders, and decide that the “age of miracles” has passed?  It is unthinkable and hard to fathom that anyone would believe such a thing. 

There are signs, wonders, and miracles happening all over the world right now—in our present time.  I have personally experienced miracles throughout my life, and many people that I know can also testify the same thing.  Once you have experienced and seen a miracle for yourself, you will never again doubt that Jesus is still performing signs and wonders.

The Bible says:  Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.  (Heb 13:8)  This means that whatever Jesus did in the past, He will continue to do forever. Whatever qualities and personality traits that Jesus demonstrated in Bible times are still active and operational today.  It also means that His personality and His mission have not and will never change. Hallelujah!

Who are we to disagree with the God of all creation?

Did Jesus Truly Show His Love?

Did Jesus Truly Show His Love?

Ponder this:  did Jesus truly show His love for mankind?  Do you have assurance of God the Father’s love for you?  Here are some Scriptures for you to consider:

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  (John 3:16)

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  (Romans 5:8)

. . . nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  (Romans 8:39, underscoring added)

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.  (Galatians 2:20)

All of these Bible verses talk about the love of God for us and the love of Jesus for us.  It is very easy to understand it through these passages.

Jesus, our Savior, demonstrated His great love for mankind and for His Father by offering His own life and blood in order to reconcile all of mankind to our Father God.   Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.  (Joh 15:13)  Jesus absolutely loved us—He gave His life for us!

With this understanding of Jesus’ love, which is a reflection of God the Father’s love, I believe it should seem like a reasonable service for us to put God in first place in our lives.
