On Sunday, September 19th at Westminster Pastor Ruttan will start a new 3-part teaching series called “Miracles – Did they happen, do they happen, and the role God gives you to play.”
When you read the Bible miracles are all over the place. Moses hears from God at a bush that isn’t burned up, water is turned into wine, and people come back back to life.
A lot of people discount them. One scholar, David Friedrich Strauss, dismissed Jesus’ walking on the water by saying that he must have been really close to the shore so it only appeared like a miracle!
Albert Einstein once said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” But isn’t there a third perspective as well? — that the God who made the world can also intervene in his world where and when he chooses to make something exceptional happen?
For three Sundays we’ll look closely at three of the miracle stories and ask, ‘Did they actually happen?’ and ‘Do they still happen?’ Not only that, but we’ll see what role God gives you to play in the midst of it all.
Think about your own life for a moment. Think about the kind of existence you lead on a day-to-day basis. If miracles are real… that changes everything.
