Imagine what it must have been like to live at the time that Jesus walked this earth. How amazing it would have been to see him heal the blind man, turn water into wine, feed the five thousand with a meager amount of provision, and calm the sea!
How great are his signs! and how mighty are his wonders! his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion is from generation to generation.
Is there anything that we as individuals living in the 21 century can learn from the miracles that Jesus performed in his life on this earth? I think there is much to be learned if we will but dig a little deeper. To me the fact that Jesus would heal the sick and provide for the hungry indicates that Jesus did and does indeed care about our physical suffering and that he often desires to make us better.
And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus' feet; and he healed them:
Matthew 15:30 informs us that great multitudes followed Jesus- what a testament to the fact that he cared about people and would have compassion upon them. Whenever we feel forgotten or feel as if we have no one to turn to for healing, we can go to Christ who will heal us as he did while on this earth.
So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum.
Sometimes I wrongly find myself thinking that maybe Christ only cares about the "big" things and the that the "small" things don't matter to him. Illustrated in John 4:46 is the truth that Jesus Christ does care about the simple things. While at a wedding feast Mary came to Jesus and told him that the drink was running low. Christ could have just brushed away such a simple thing but instead he chose to provided what was wanted even though it wasn't a need. If Jesus would take the time to miraculously provide drink for the wedding guest, I know that he could provide all things for me.
I will remember the works of the LORD: surely I will remember thy wonders of old.
Today I want to challenge both you and me to remember the mighty miracles that Jesus Christ did while he was here on this. Let's remember that each miracle has a lesson for us if we will simply take it to heart and remember it.
