“I, the Lord God, have called you in righteousness, and I will hold fast onto your hand and strengthen you and make you a covenant for the nation to open the eyes of the blind, to lead those who are bound out from their chains, and those seated in darkness out of prison.”
Jesus quoted from this passage as he began his ministry. He performed many different miracles as evidence that the “kingdom of God had come upon the people.” The undeniable power of these signs proved his message: He was the Messiah and he had come to reign as Lord of Lords. The power of Jesus’ miracles leave us with only three options: we can dismiss them, claim they were demonic in origin, or admit that Jesus was who he claimed to be, the divine Son of God.
John recorded the signs Jesus performed so that we could “believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing we can have life in his name.” In our 2021 Summer Series this year, the Brentwood Church will be focusing on Jesus’ miracles. When we see the might wonders Jesus performed, we, too, are left the with the same choice. Will we receive or reject Jesus? If we believe, then we too are set free from the bondage of sin and our spiritual blindness is cured and the miracles of Jesus are still doing their work.
