"...many of the crowd began to believe in Him, and said, 'When the Messiah comes, will He perform more signs than this Man has done?' " John 7:31
They weren't quite to the point of knowing for sure that He was the Messiah, but they were getting close, weren't they?
It is so amazing to watch the progress of an "almost believer" on their journey toward Christ. They are seeing more and more; learning more and more. They aren't quite there, but almost. The neat thing is, too, that they are often closer than they think they are! So incredible to watch the process of the Holy Spirit's workings.
May we all have the joy of seeing new life this Easter!
My offering to God: I will thank God for the gift of faith.
