John 20:30-31

John 20:30-31 - Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.

Jesus is our example. He did it all; He endured all things to show us how we are to live this life. As we read the gospel we see many stories of what Christ did. We see His teaching, His miracles, His relationships and many other details of His life on earth.
        It is amazing to think that we are only seeing a small portion of all that Jesus actually did. Even with what we do see it blows my mind, but there was so much more. Everyday, everywhere He went there were people getting healed and hearts that were getting touched. Lives were changing.
        So here comes the tough part: we are supposed to live like Jesus did. When was the last time you let God do a miracle through you? Who was the last person you touched? Are the lives of those around you changing for the better?
        Of course that can be hard to answer because we can’t see peoples hearts, only God can. We can, however, look at our own hearts and lives and know whether we are living a lifestyle that reflects God. I know I often fail at this task, but I am a work in progress.
        Jesus spent time with God everyday and that should be our first step as well. If you are not allowing God to change you, He will never be able to use you to change others.
