""The words I say to you are not just My own. Rather, it is the Father, living in Me, who is doing His work. Believe Me when I say I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves."
- John 14:10b, 11

Jesus says again,"Keep on believing me when I say I am in the Father" We note again the intent of the Savior to comfort and bolster the hearts of His disciples with what they had come to know and believe about Him. To this end, He also commands to them the evidence of the miracles He had done.

The miracles of Jesus were meant to confirm His words. Indeed, all of the miracles of the Bible serve this purpose. Moses was given certain miraculous signs to perform before the elders of Israel as confirmation of His message to them in Ex. 4. Jesus' miraculous healing of the paralyzed man whose friends had lowered him down through the roof served to confirm that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins. in Luke 5:24. Nicodemus had recognized this about the miracles and said as much to Jesus during His secret visit: "Rabbi, we know You are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with Him" John 3:2. Tomorrow we will hear as Jesus follows His exhortation to faith with a promise to faith.

Christian friends, Every Christian that reads and studies his Bible in the right way and hears the preaching of the Gospel, hears and sees God Himself, is a witness of the great miracles.

We all believe in one true God
Maker of the earth and heaven,
We all believe in Christ His Son,
Whom as LORD we are addressing.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - The belief in the Son is identical with the belief in the Father.
