Psalm 69:9 (text)
The signs of Jesus revealed who He was.
The signs of Jesus drew attention to His message.
The signs of Jesus showed something about the kingdom.
The signs of Jesus forced people to respond.
Jesus knows people’s hearts.
He didn’t just know them, then. He knows us, now.
“The older we get, the harder it is to fill your heart with a sense of wonder.”
Wonder is the feeling of amazement or admiration caused by something unusual, beautiful or remarkable.
Jesus did not come to judge the world but to save it.
