The Whole Story: Jesus - Miracles of Jesus
As we gather in worship this weekend, we will turn our focus to Mark 4-6 and look at the miracles of Jesus. Jesus gave the blind their sight, rose the dead to life, and healed people of their diseases. He did not only perform miracles long ago. He is still the God of miracles today. Psalm 77:11-14 says,
“I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds. Your ways, God, are holy. What god is as great as our God? You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.”
As we respond in faith, believing that God can and will perform the impossible still today, we will sing the song “Miracles” by Jesus Culture. This song was written in the midst of the loss of a baby and the choice to either doubt God’s sovereignty or to cling to Him tighter than ever before. Despite the loss of the child, the writers believed that God is and will always be the God of miracles. We often as believers allow our circumstances to shape our view of God, but God is never changing. He is faithful. The verse and chorus are simple,
”The One who does impossible, is reaching out to make me whole. The One who put death in its place, His life is flowing through my veins. I believe in You, I believe in You, You’re the God of miracles.”
We can take hope knowing that this pain on earth is only for a moment. Healing for eternity is assured, and we receive a glimpse of that through the miracles of Jesus. May we come together, humble ourselves, and ask God for a miracle.
