The Sign of Jonah
People often say, “Show me a sign that God is real, and I will believe.” The generation during Jesus’ ministry was no different. Jesus does great things in Israel: comforting the afflicted, healing the sick, transforming tax collectors, forgiving sinners, casting out demons, preaching the truth, but none of it is good enough for the religious leaders. They want a messiah on their terms, one who plays by their rules. But Jesus does the will of His Father, and not theirs. He is greater than Jonah, and all who believe the sign and follow His Father become part of His family.
