“Let this Christ, this King of Israel come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe.”
I have friends who insist that the only thing stopping them from worshipping God is proof. If only God would prove Himself to them, that’s all it would take. Yet He chooses not to make it any easier for them; not to give them more than He already has. Why? Isn’t the saving of souls the most precious thing in the world? I think that at the heart of this is the issue of humility. If God had, for example, come down off the cross (or some other equally as impressive miracle), what then? The spectators’ minds would have been changed, true. But their hearts would have been untouched. Conceding a person to be Divine and worshipping Him are two different things. I am struck by what an integral part of worship it is that we serve and submit ourselves to Him simply because we know Him and love Him – not because He makes Himself so irrefutably obvious to us that we really have no choice in the matter.
DEAR GOD, LET ME RECOGNIZE YOU IN THE SMALL WAYS YOU MAKE YOURSELF KNOWN TO ME TODAY. AMEN.
