Lesson 66: The Problem with Signs (Luke 11:29-32)Related Media
What’s so bad about wanting a sign from Jesus? Doesn’t it make sense to get a little authentication from someone when he’s making some pretty incredible claims? One thing we have to understand about Jesus is that He never came up short in His ministry or left things out. He has perfectly given us all that we needed. The big question for everyone who interacts with Him is, “What is it that you really want—Jesus Himself or something else?” This question is just as applicable for us today as it was for those in Jesus’s day. Pastor Daniel encourages his listeners to look at this text and be reminded that we are to pursue the person of Jesus Christ as we wrestle through uncertainties in life. He reminds us that, as we do such, 1) pursuing truth (as opposed to demanding signs) is not evil, 2) seeking signs is evil because it diminishes Christ instead of exalting Him, and 3) hearing the good news of Jesus Christ should result in worshipful repentance.
