What Is Keeping You From Believing?

What Is Keeping You From Believing?

What is keeping you from believing? In Mark 8:10-13, the Pharisees come to Jesus looking for a sign. “We will believe if you will just show us something. If you will do ‘X’, then we will believe.” Jesus tells them that they would not receive a sign, then boards a ship and leaves. Why? Because without faith it is impossible to please God.

They didn’t have faith. The fact is that they had already seen many signs, yet they refused to believe. They would later receive the sign of His resurrection, the sign of Jonah, and they would continue in their unbelief. They do so because the problem is not due to a lack of evidence, but rather a lack of faith. I hear people all the time saying “If God would do this” or “why doesn’t God do this or that?” They are either too lazy to look at the evidence given, or they just don’t want to. Because if they come to the conclusion that the evidence is real, and Jesus is who He says He is, then they have to make a decision to submit or reject. And, sadly, men do not want to submit to Christ. So they continue in their little dance of denial and speculation.
