Miracles

December 16, 2017, Bro. Chris Conly

Have you ever experienced a miracle? I mean a real knock your socks off, “What in the world!” “That didn’t just happen!” miracle? Do you even believe in miracles? How would you like to have been there when Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead? If that happened today and the video hit Facebook, what would be the reaction? That’s actually an easy answer; some would believe they saw a miracle and some would not believe. Oh, there would be lots of posts, and likes, and shares, and arguments, and so on, but all responses would be based on one question. “Do I believe what I just saw is real?” We see the same division in almost every miracle we read about in the Bible. God intervenes and does something that breaks the laws of nature. Some believe in the miracle and give God the glory, others refuse to believe and remain baffled.

By the way, that’s what a miracle is, a surprising event that cannot be explained by the laws of nature or science. A miracle is a super-natural event, and by definition it has to include something (someone) super-natural. I know we use that word for things that are not really miraculous. The birth of a baby is not a miracle, except for Mary’s baby. It is awesome, yes, but having babies is very natural. Sunsets, waterfalls, Olivia cleaning her room without being told, skinny guys winning eating contests, PRESIDENT Donald Trump (Ok, maybe?), are awesome and odd, but can be easily explained.

They can all be explained because of the first miracle, In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. For six days God performed one miracle after another to set up a nature that displays His glory in astounding ways. He rested on the seventh and His creating was over. His involvement was not. God is alive and active in His creation. Sometimes He shows up as a miracle and bends His own laws. Sometimes He works within those laws to accomplish His will, but the question still remains. Do you believe in miracles? How about that first one? If your belief doesn’t start there all the others will just be baffling.
