In September at Westminster Pastor Ruttan led us in a 4-part teaching series called “Miracles – Do they happen, how they happen, and the life-changing difference it makes.”
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 corpses 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 four Sundays we looked closely at miracles.
In Part 1 on September 9th we spoke with Will Han, someone who has personally be involved in the miraculous. (To listen click here.)
In Part 2 on September 16th we explored what the scientific community has to say about the miraculous, and also how miracles tend to happen in the New Testament. (To listen click here.)
In Part 3 on September 23rd we talked about a tough one: when miracles don’t happen. (To listen click here.)
And in Part 4 on September 30th we again spoke with Will Han and the difference that believing in the miraculous can make in your daily life. (To listen click here.) And to read a related blog called “4 ways to dial into God’s power on a daily basis” click here.
Through it all we leveraged biblical teachings to give us insight and direction.
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.
