While Jesus lived on earth, He walked on the sea, healed the sick and raised the dead. Jesus did these signs to show the people about God’s love. Some people came to Jesus to watch His miracles – like we would watch a movie today – just for entertainment. But some people watched Jesus’ signs and saw God’s power. These people believed that Jesus was God’s Son.
In many of our churches, interpreters use sign language to help deaf people understand the pastor’s sermon. The interpreter’s signs tell us about God’s love and help lead us to Jesus.
In the same way, Jesus is God’s interpreter. Jesus shows us the way to God. In our Bible Reading today, the people asked Jesus what they should do. Jesus answered in verse 29b, “The work God wants you to do is this: to believe in the One that God sent.” That is what God wants us to do, too. We should believe that Jesus is God’s Son.
I hope you believe in Jesus. Follow Jesus and let Him lead you closer to God.
