Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did. (John 2:23)
These people were believing in Jesus not because of who he was, but they believed because of what he did, which didn’t cut the mustard! You see, theirs wasn’t a saving faith at all.
Let me give you an example. You walk into a room and see a recliner. You say to yourself, “My, that recliner looks so comfortable and I do believe it will hold me up because I saw a large person sitting in it the other day!” You believe it will hold you up but you don’t put your trust in the chair until you sit in it!
Many believe in Jesus because they’ve heard about him but they’ve never pt their trust in him. Oh, they go to church and they say they know him but deep down they do not! The Bible says the demons also believe and shutter! We should examine ourselves to see if we truly know the Lord!
