What Are Miracles?

What we call miracles are only occasional alterations in the normal miraculous flow of creation.  If making the blind to see is a miracle (and it is), then giving babies sight in the first place is a miracle.  If turning water into wine is a miracle (and it is), then turning the seed of a grape into wine is also a miracle (though the process takes much longer).  If walking on water is a miracle (and it is), then walking on the side of a sphere while it spins and revolves through space at thousands upon thousands of miles per hour is a miracle, too. 

The reason some people don’t believe in miracles is that they don’t believe in any alteration in the normal course of things.  They overlook, however, how wondrous is “the normal course of things.”  They have hardened their hearts to the beauty and glory of the world in which we live.  Surely, in this case at least, familiarity breeds contempt.  But it doesn’t have to be this way.  We can open our hearts and minds to the stunning wonder to which we are exposed day after day. 

Jesus Christ made and sustains you as well as the creation in which we dwell.  You yourself are part of the “normal miraculous flow of creation.”  Do not let your heart be hardened.  Repent and live for Him.  Repent and live with Him, sharing every thought you have with Him.
