This is Only a Test

In Matthew 16:1 the Pharisees and Sadducees attempted to test Jesus by provoking Him to give them a sign. He, knowingly, responded that they were able to discern the weather judging by the color of the sky but they could not discern the signs of the times. He told them He would give no G4592 (sign, miracle, wonder, token) than that of Jonah. Jonah refused the task set before him and because of it suffered judgement. Jonah relented when God reminded him that he was bound to the task set before him but the Pharisees and Sadducees evidenced that they were too hardened by religion to relent.

I pray that we will be sensitive to the task He has set before us and that it will not be necessary to receive a sign from Heaven to confirm that "YES" this is what God wants His children to do. We don't need to pray for confirmation that He wants us to do what He has told us to do. Yes, He wants us to help the widow, the naked, the hungry, the imprisoned, and carry the Good News to the world.
