John 6:30--“What sign then are You going to do so we may see and believe You?” they asked. “What are You going to perform?”
The Jews wanted signs from Jesus to prove His claims and authenticate that He was their Savior. God more than accommodated their desire but still most refused to believe. Not even a cord change that stopped changing could breach their thinking. This is why it is so imperative that we pray that God will soften people’s hearts so that they may understand what they see and do not see. It is why we must adamantly ask Him to soften our own hearts lest we miss what He is doing and fail to understand His will for our lives. That the cord changed from scarlet to white was incredible—a yearly miracle they became accustomed to seeing. That the cord stopped changing after a crucifixion should have arrested their attention. A chord change in music is noteworthy. A cord change in life is faith-worthy. Something to think about . . . in reveration.
God surrounds every one of us with His kingdom at every turn—with messages and messengers, signs and gifts—and He has given it all to us so that we would turn our eyes and hearts toward Him.—Dr. Chauncey Crandall in Touching Heaven
