John 4:43-54 (January 4, 2015)

In our time there are whole theological systems based on the idea that God wants to do miracles all the time, and that, in fact, the only reason that He doesn’t do miracles all the time is that we, the church, don’t believe enough.

I can tell you from the Word of God, and I can tell you from my own experience as a cancer survivor and the father of a severely handicapped child, it takes more faith to live day by day without a miracle than it does to ask God to miraculously heal.

Many people today aren’t looking for a miracle as such, but they do want to know “What is Jesus going to do for me?” That’s the wrong question to ask, and it usually doesn’t get a good answer from the Lord. The right question to ask is “What has Jesus done for me, and how will I live as a result?”
