The Grave Robber

The Grave Robber

The law of entropy doesn’t just govern the physical universe. It has governed the spiritual realm since it was introduced in the Garden of Eden after Adam and Eve’s original sin. God forewarned them: Do not eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will surely […]

Never Say Never Again

Never Say Never Again

There are four primary types of healing miracles recorded in the Gospels. Jesus made the lame walk, the mute talk, the blind see, and the deaf hear. While all four are amazing in their own right, blindness certainly entails the greatest degree of difficulty because of the complexity of the human eye. But the sixth […]

The 70 Minute Miracle

We cannot control the weather. All we can do is talk about it when there is nothing else to talk about. But there is One who commands the wind and rebukes the waves. The One who turned water into wine also turned the Sea of Galilee into a sea of glass. The One who created […]

Go Get Your Miracle

Go Get Your Miracle

In first-century Israel, royal officials and itinerant Jewish rabbis ran in very different social circles. In fact, they avoided each other like the plague. But desperate times call for desperate measures, especially when your son is at the point of death. We will move heaven and Earth if that’s what it takes! Or humble ourselves […]

The Wine Maker

The Wine Maker

There are days. Good days. Bad days. Long days. Tough days. Joyful days. Then there are days that define the rest of your life. This was that day for Jesus. For nearly thirty years Jesus worked in his father’s carpentry shop. For as long as he could remember, people called him a carpenter. But on […]

Don’t Miss the Miracle

Don't Miss the Miracle

Remember the old adage? “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” It’s true of everything, isn’t it? But it’s especially true of miracles. Miracles are happening all around us all the time, but you won’t see them if you don’t know how to look for them.
