"… that by believing you may have life in His name."
[Continuing the idea of one of my old hymns on Sundays:]
(John 2:11, 20:31)
The water was changed into wine, –
a quiet, miraculous sign,
and those who were following saw, believed
the glory of Jesus revealed.
Miraculous signs that were clear
for all to observe and admire,
but yet only those
who loved him chose
to trust him with godly fear.
The 5000 men were all fed,
but Christ could give more than that bread. –
How few people followed, his words believed,
and Life in the Saviour received.
Miraculous signs were made known,
that we might believe in the Son,
and know who he is, and have Life in him,
eternally safe from all sin.
