How Much is Enough? (John 21:25)

And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Amen.
John 21:25

The Gospels record less than 50 miracles of Jesus. In fact, the Gospel of John records only 7. Yet, the very last verse of the Gospel of John records that Jesus did do many other things and presumably performed many more miracles. However, the Holy Spirit reveals to us only the miracles that are recorded in the 4 Gospels.

I wonder if the Bible recorded 50 more miracles, would doubters and non-believers be persuaded to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior? What about 1000 more miracles? How much is enough?

The miracles that Jesus performed are to help us believe in Jesus Christ. The miracles demonstrate the power and authority of Jesus over all the elements of nature and ultimately, His power over life and death. But for some, no amount of miracles, will ever be enough to convince them of the truth of Jesus. Why?

The explanations of the world, through science or theories of evolution, may be enough for some to reject the possibility of a supreme God. For others, unless they are actual eyewitnesses to a miracle, they will not believe. Still others, even if they saw and believed in the miracles, it does not mean that Jesus’ word is true. For this last group, miracles are just a manifestation of some abstract god that can manipulate the laws of the universe. But this god is not the God of the Bible.

God, through His Holy Spirit, has given us the Bible as the only record of how He created the universe and all the living creatures. It is complete and unerring. But for those who dismiss the Bible as God’s Word, how many have actually read it? How many have honestly examined what God has done throughout the history of the world? How many even know or realize what God has done for them? What more than the Bible does God have to give to us so that we may believe?

How much is enough? Only God knows that answer for each heart that is seeking the truth. If you do not know who God is, pray to Him that He would reveal Himself to you. God always answers the prayers of those who honestly come to Him seeking an answer. God will give you exceeding abundantly more than you ever thought you would need!
