Faith and Humility
September 25, 2016 |
“‘No, father Abraham; but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ Abraham said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be convinced even if someone rises from the dead’” (Luke 16:30-31).
Miracles are not enough in order to believe. Miracles are important: as St. Paul says “If Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith” (1 Corinthians 15:14). But miracles do not produce faith. Faith requires humility. If we are not humble, even if we see miracles with our own eyes, we will not believe. Many people saw the miracles of Jesus, and some of them accused him and killed him. The fact that we witness a miracle does not prevent us from betraying our Lord. But how is that possible?
