“What sign then are You going to do so we may see and believe You?” they asked, “What are You going to perform? Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, just as it is written: He gave them bread from heaven to eat. John 6:30-31 HCSB
The people were following Jesus because of what they could get from Him. They wanted to be healed. They wanted to be fed. They liked watching Him heal others. In the minds of many people, it was a show worth watching. They may or may not have been believers, but they enjoyed a good show.
The people wanted more miracles and signs. They even mocked Jesus when they talked about their ancestors eating manna in the dessert. This was an insult directed at Jesus. They were basically saying, “We have already heard about our ancestors eating manna in the desert and we have seen you feed thousands of people, but we want to see more. Do something no one else can do.”
Challenge: What is it going to take for you to believe? Jesus said how much more blessed it would be for the person who does not see yet believes. Accept Jesus based on your understanding and have faith that He will forgive your sins and give you eternal life.
