When people ask me to “prove it that Jesus is the Son of God,” this is my typical reaction:
I chuckle, inside.
Not to be disrespectful, but I chuckle to myself.
Because think about it this way: The Magi traveled thousands of miles to see the King. And when they found him, they responded with joy, worship, and gifts:
Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the reign of King Herod. About that time some wise men from eastern lands arrived in Jerusalem, asking, “Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star as it rose,and we have come to worship him.”
This is a different approach than the person who says “prove it.” We expect God to come looking for us, to explain himself, prove who he is, and give us gifts.
Those who are wise still seek and worship Jesus today, not for what they can get, but for who he is.
Let go of the expectation to be showered with gifts by God and offer your talents, resources, and life as a gift to him. Honor Christ for who he is and be willing to give him what is valuable to you.
