Searching for indicators is a well-recognized theme within the Gospels. Many discovered it tough to simply accept Jesus’ educating and actions with out on the lookout for one thing extra. In our age, folks search for scientific proof in lots of conditions. Lord, assist us to maneuver past the rational and logical, to the standard of our relationship with you, and to offer witness to our religion in you.

Jesus didn’t adjust to the request for an indication. That might have been to cheat his listeners from shifting on in religion that was extra solidly based mostly. Jesus was giving indicators, however the folks appeared unable to interpret them, as they have been trying within the incorrect course. Lord, we pray that we might even see and recognize what you provide, for it’s enduring and satisfies our true wants.
