Fast Day 16

Saturday, 6th March

Reading John 7:25-36

Still, many in the crowd believed in him. They said, ‘When the Messiah comes, will he perform more signs than this man?’

John 7:31 NIV

It was autumn, and Jesus was preaching in Jerusalem, but the crowd was unsure about whether Jesus was the Christ. The issue at hand was that while they all knew of God, they did not have a relationship with, or understanding of, God. Would the Messiah simply be a performer of signs, or were those signs creating a greater message of the kingdom already coming among them?

When we deepen our relationship with God, we realise what it is to be part of the kingdom, and how that will shape our life.
