Topic: +DEV+ His Identity
"Jesus did many other miraculous signs....But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name." John 20:30-31
Scripture Focus: John 14:6-11
If your identity were in doubt, how would you prove who you are? You might show an ID card. You could ask someone to vouch for you. You may even offer to do something only you can do or provide answers no one else knows.
In Jesus' day, Israel longed for the Messiah to come and defeat the Romans. They had already been disappointed by false messiahs. So how did Jesus Christ prove His identity as the Son of God and Israel's true Messiah? He did not have an ID card, but His genealogy was well documented. His brothers did not believe who He said he was at first (Mark 3:20-21), but His heavenly Father confirmed the He was the Son of God (Matthew 3:17). And Jesus performed miracles.
The miracles of Jesus confirm who He is. God created the world, and only God could suspend its natural laws. Man was sin-sick; only God could bring healing - both physically and spiritually. Each miracle of Jesus points to His identity and His authority...and tells us something about the heart of God for His people.
Insight: How do Jesus' miracles confirm His identity to you today? Allow these miraculous accounts to give you a fresh appreciation of who Christ is!
