Only One Real "Sign"

Week Two: Jesus Predicts His Death
Day: 
6
Pray: 
Merciful Lord, forgive my sin now and prepare me to come before You and enjoy Your fellowship.
Read: 

Matthew 12:38-45 

 38 Then some of the Pharisees and teachers of the law said to him, "Teacher, we want to see a miraculous sign from you."

 39 He answered, "A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a miraculous sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. 40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. 41 The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and now one greater than Jonah is here. 42 The Queen of the South will rise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for she came from the ends of the earth to listen to Solomon's wisdom, and now one greater than Solomon is here.

   43 "When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. 44 Then it says, 'I will return to the house I left.' When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order. 45 Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation."

Reflect: 

What evidence from your life could you share with others to help them believe in Jesus?

Apply: 
What "signs" do people today demand in order to believe in Jesus? How can you help someone you know believe?
Pray: 
Lord, make my life a clear sign for all to see that You are alive and at work in me each day.
