Walking on water and changing water to wine.
Lifting up the dead and opening the eyes of the blind.
Healing the sick and feeding thousands with a handful of food.
What happened when all of this was done?
The miraculous and supernatural? No doubt!
But beyond these elements there was also the testing of hearts.
Some saw the miracles and an opportunity to make it big in the world. But Jesus’ desire was for the miracles to reveal how big Israel’s opportunity was to get right with God.
What do we do with the blessings that God sends our way? EA
“I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.” (Jeremiah 17:10)
“Therefore when Jesus perceived that they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him king, He departed again to the mountain by Himself alone. … Jesus answered them and said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him.”” (John 6:15, 26-27)
