Need a Sign From God?

“A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah.” Jesus then left them and went away.  Matthew 16:4

Why is it wicked and adulterous to look for a miraculous sign?  Does God expect us to believe without proof?  NO!

Sign-seeking is wicked for the following reasons:

  1. It ignores what Jesus has already done.  It says, “Jesus, we don’t believe you.  Prove yourself.”  Over and over.
  2. It places us as judge over Jesus.  “Jesus, you perform for me and I’ll decide whether or not you are valid.”
  3. It places miracles over testimony.  Miracles are used to attract our attention to valid testimony.
