I am amazed at how people regardless of their political orientation, religious affiliation, or geographical region… are running from church to church, from this place to that place in pursuit of miracles.
I am still amazed at the cost they’re paying in terms of time, energy and financial resources in the quest for these miracles.
Miracles have an expiry date though. They can’t take one beyond the grave unless they’re saved. In the end, non-believers in Jesus will resurrect to eternal condemnation (which is the second death) regardless of whether they experienced miracles or not when they were alive. I’m not negating the necessity of miracles anyway.
But there is something greater than miracles, which is salvation. Salvation doesn’t have an expiry date because if you’re born again and you die in the Lord you’ll in the end resurrect to everlasting life.
I want to say that if you’re saved (a believer in Jesus Christ) you are a product of the greatest miracle that has ever happened to you. A miracle of being born again into new life and after you die, resurrecting to immortality.
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.”John 14:12.
If you tell somebody about Jesus and they get saved, you’ve already performed a greater miracle than the miracles people are chasing after. You have no idea what other miracles could follow after the person you have shared the Gospel with surrenders their life to Jesus.
There is so much treasure in salvation. Most of the miracles people are chasing after are packaged in salvation.
Yet, in the same manner, as the people are pursuing miracles, and receiving them, they can receive salvation. This is because salvation like miracles is for all people regardless of their ethnicity, geographical location, social standings, religion etc.
The Bible in Titus 2 says,
“For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearance of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.”Titus 2:11–14.
Tell somebody about Jesus today. You never know what miracles will happen to you and that person, but God’s grace is available for you.
“For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.”1 Corinthians 1:21.
God bless you more!
