Join us starting this Easter Sunday, April 16, as we launch this new series.
“Miracles – Do Miracles still Happen?”
Do miracles still happen and if so – why? What’s crazy about this question is the “strange bed-fellows” this question makes.
For example, atheists and Christians who believe all the miraculous gifts have ceased would probably fall into the same “bed” and say – “no, miracles do not happen.” And, Christians who have great and diverse views on the bible could land in the same “bed” and say – “yes, I believe miracles still do happen.” So, how do you know who is right? You have to look at the two reasons Jesus said miracles occur.
- Miracles occurred from the hand of Jesus to validate that He was God.
- Miracles occurred from the hand of Jesus to point to the restoration of all things that one day will occur – because of the greatest miracle – His resurrection from the dead.
Miracles prove Jesus was God, but miracles also prove God’s ultimate goal in coming to this earth is not just to forgive us but to restore us and all creation into what He intended us to be. Miracles still happen because they give evidence to God’s great power to heal but even more – they give evidence to God’s great power to fix or restore all things that are broken in this world by our sin.
Many have given up on this world, their family, or themselves – because they see the brokenness as too great. Do you know someone who is in this place? Bring them with you. Are you in this place? Join us as we dive into the miracles of Jesus and how they reveal His great power and our great need for the power of God to heal and restore the hopeless things of this world and the hopeless things in us.
