In Luke 22 we see Jesus perform a miracle at a time of intense personal pressure, and for someone who was his enemy. It reveals much about God’s attitude towards us when we “were dead in our transgressions and sins”, and shows that whatever the most able and gifted in our society may say, God is never predictable.
In Matthew 9:1-8, Jesus shows His divine love to a paralysed man by forgiving him for his sins before the man can do anything for Jesus. We can show the love of God to people by forgiving them as God forgave us, freely and without reservation, without them needing to do anything for us.
In today’s busy lifestyles it is easy to overlook the small miracles going on in our lives every day. The moments when God changes the ordinary into the extraordinary. Jesus does just this in his miracle, Changing Water into Wine found in John 2:1-11. Megan looks at present day examples of where Jesus has turned the ordinary (water) into the extraordinary (wine). If we get so busy in life that we no longer spot the little every day miracles are we missing out on some of the wonder of God?
Everything Jesus does can be seen as a miracle. In Luke 18, Jesus is asking the blind beggar 'what do you want me to do for you?'. He is also asking us the same question today. What do you want Jesus to do for you? What miracle do you want?
Jesus is constantly doing miracles in our lives even when we are unaware, but what would happen if we spent more time with Jesus and focused on the miracles he’s already given? The miracle in John 21: 1-14 is a great example of what happens when we recognise exactly what Jesus is giving us.
