Unlimited: The Miraculous Word of Jesus
Feb 5, 2017 1023
Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through Him, as you yourselves know(Acts 2:22).
The Gospel of John records seven miracles that Jesus performed. These illustrate the transforming power of Jesus in our lives.
In these miracles, we find transformation from sadness to gladness, from disease to health, from paralysis to abundant energy, from hunger to fullness, from anxiety to tranquillity, from darkness to light, from death to life. In these miracles, we are given a picture of the transformation that takes place in the life of every person who comes to Jesus. These miracles reveal that all things are under the control of Jesus.
The main point for each of us is that Christ’s transforming Word is as strong and efficient as His actual presence. Without touching the water in the stone jars at the wedding in Cana, Christ, with a word, turned it into wine. Later, He spoke a word at Cana and healed a boy at Capernaum. And that same word called a dead man from his grave. That word is still available to accomplish a miracle of salvation in the life of even the weakest of believers who calls out to Christ in faith. – Des Ford
Eli’s Reflection: Are you calling out to Christ in faith today? All power belongs to Christ. I invite you to spend some time thanking Jesus for His power, for His promises to you; then claim the powerful, transforming Word of Christ for yourself or for someone whom you love.
