The Importance of Miracles (Exodus 4:5)

Moses, while speaking with God in the burning bush, said “Behold, they will not believe me, nor listen to my voice: for they will say, God has not appeared unto you”. (Exodus 4:1)

Rightly did Moses question the believability of his instructions from God. Moses was concerned that if he told the Hebrews that God has sent him, that they would not believe him. So God instructed Moses that the rod in his hand, when cast to the ground, would turn into a snake. And when he grabbed the snake by the tail, it would turn back into a rod. God gave Moses this power to perform a miracle for this one purpose: That they may believe that the LORD God appeared unto Moses. (Exodus 4:5)

Likewise, believing that Jesus is God is also a stumbling block for much of the world. That is why the miracles performed by Jesus are so important. The Apostle John recorded in his gospel: That the miracles of Jesus were written down so that people will believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. And that by believing you will have life through his name. (John 20:31) Jesus Himself said that the works and miracles which He did give a greater witness, or a greater proof, that God indeed has sent Him. (John 5:36)

So it is because of these miracles why we can have confidence that Jesus is indeed the Christ, the Son of the living God. (Matthew 16:16)
