Jesus did many other 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
How do you choose which aspects of a man’s life are worthy of painting a complete picture of who he is? This question was formidable for John as he focused his brushstrokes on his subject, Jesus the Christ.
Is it enough? Has John covered the canvas sufficiently to accomplish his goal – that you may believe and have life? John pictures for us the great love of Jesus for His people. Highlighted is the restoration and reconciliation brought forth by Jesus. In stark contrast, John displays the Love of God shining brightly from Jesus’ cross into the darkness of a world that hated. Complete in its simplicity, John gives us a masterpiece portrait of the Master of Peace. In Jesus we believe and have life!
Jesus, thank you for the Gospels; strengthen my faith. Amen.
