The Miracle You Need

Do you believe in miracles? Many people think that miracles are only fantasy or superstition believed by ignorant people. So-called miracles may be fake and only illusion. If miracles are really possible, do you need a miracle in your life?

Believing in miracles is really not the question. Can God perform miracles? That's the real question. If your answer is yes, that leads us to another question. Will God do a miracle in your life? You may actually believe that he already has done a miracle for you.

God has a miracle for you. His name is Jesus. He is miraculous. He had a miraculous birth. He performed miracles on this earth. He was miraculously raised from death. If you believe in Jesus, you believe in miracles, because that's who he is.

The greatest miracle Jesus can do for you in this life is to change your heart. It's a miracle of faith, hope, and love. He takes away doubt and unbelief to give you faith. He takes away hopeless despair to give you hope. He takes away hate and bitterness to give you love. That's the miracle you need.

"Then Jesus began to denounce the cities in which most of the miracles had been performed, because they did not repent" (Matthew 11:20, NIV).
"Who then can be saved?  Jesus looked at them and said, 'With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God" (Mark 10:26-27, NIV).
