Today’s Reading | Luke 8
Seeing Who God Is
How many different miracles did Jesus do in this chapter? Number them in your Bible. Next to each miracle, write what it reveals about Jesus Christ and what conclusion one could come to by observing it. It is beyond comprehension that so many people saw Jesus perform miracles on a daily basis, yet still not receive Him as Lord. He demonstrated His power over nature; He demonstrated His power over the forces of hell. He demonstrated His power over the human body and even power over death. It would sure seem that after witnessing all His power, the only conclusion you could come to is that Jesus is God. Many did not, and unfortunately people today are just as blind. Christians see God do the miraculous all around them, yet still doubt He can meet their immediate needs. The unsaved see the transformed lives of people who have trusted Christ, yet they refuse to humble themselves before Him. Have you witnessed what God has done for others and even in your own life without allowing it to impact your faith? Ask God to open your eyes in a fresh way to what He is doing and who He really is.
Observation: What do I see?
Interpretation: What does it mean?
Application: How does it apply to me?
Implementation: What do I do?
