had a conversation with a cynical person before. “Prove that Jesus is God,” they say. “Prove that there is a God. Prove that the Bible is true.”
And you know, something that I’ve found to be true through the years is that lack of evidence is usually not the real issue in these conversations.
There is an abundance of evidence for our faith. And usually those who question the evidence have already heard the facts.
There is stubbornness to their unbelief. In John 6 we see an amazing example of this. Jesus just fed the five thousand. Then He walks on water.
He’s performing miracles left and right! And then the people question Jesus, asking Him, “‘…what sign do you do, that we may see and believe you? What work do you perform?… Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How does he now say, ‘I have come down from heaven’?”
Jesus was there with these townspeople in person. And yet, even after witnessing His miracles, they doubted Him and resisted belief.
So I want to encourage you today to be faithful in sharing the Good News Gospel and don’t be concerned with trying to “prove it.”
Never underestimate the power of the Gospel to bring conviction. You do your part. Ultimately the Holy Spirit must change people’s hearts and minds.
