7 Signs of Jesus in the Gospel of John
CRISIS Faith v 46-47
- The father is DESPERATE
- This father understood the value and gift of life:
- GOD is the Creator of life
- Every child is a GIFT from God
- God holds every life in His HAND
- This man came to Jesus in a CRISIS and Jesus met him at his point of NEED.
CONFIDENT Faith v 47-49
- He displays a confident faith that JESUS can do what no one was able to do; heal his son.
- Jesus teaches us that signs, by themselves, are an INSUFFICIENT basis for faith
- The ESSENCE of faith is in the complete TRUST of who Jesus is what He has promised.
CONFIRMED Faith v 50-52
- All Jesus gives this father is His PROMISE
- God’s promises are SUFFICIENT for a faith that is alive and active.
- This dad TRUSTED Jesus and he OBEYED Jesus
CONTAGIOUS Faith v 53
- It is not enough to know ABOUT Jesus; God wants us to know Jesus INTIMATELY and PASSIONATELY – to surrender our lives to Him and faithfully follow Him.
