James 1:1-11; Psalm 119; Mark 8:11-13

Belief in Jesus

Jesus makes it clear: whatever the sign, nothing will satisfy the demands of those whose minds are already made up. The Pharisees were out to get Jesus; any signs given by Jesus would only fuel their hatred for him.

Jesus’ signs are stepping stones to belief; to believe is to believe in the Person of Jesus, not in the signs.

This is the faith the apostle James calls us to cling to: we are to believe in Jesus the Christ, come what may, because this life is passing away; only our life in Christ holds the promise of eternal life.
