Do you believe in Miracles?

Today we take a look at the miracles recorded in the gospel. There are about 36 instances of Jesus working miracles. Some of these involved multitudes of people so it is impossible to know how many people in all got healed during Christ?s ministry.

Do you believe in miracles? Especially healing miracles.

The central core of the Christian faith is the virgin birth, the death, resurrection and ascension of Christ into heaven (Acts 1 - 3). Without believing this you cannot be a Christian.

If you can believe that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead, why is it so hard for you to accept that he opens blind eyes and restores sick bodies? If God still saves He still works miracles.

Our very faith is all about the miracle of God coming into our lives.

Read the following accounts from the gospel and let them stir up your faith to receive a miracle from God. Miracles should be something we expect in our lives and the people around us.
