When life grows dark and stormy, does God notice? The answer, in the life-giving miracles of the gospel of John, is a resounding “yes.” Do you believe in a Jesus who has not only power, but a passionate love for the weak and wounded of the world? Do you think he cares enough to find you in the lonely waiting rooms, the rehab centers, and the convalescent homes of life?

You and I long for someone who will meet us in the midst of life’s messes. If this is your desire, take a good look at the words of John and the miracles of Christ and see if they don’t achieve their desired goal: “That you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name” (John 20:31). Remember, friends, you are never alone.
