Seeing Jesus: The Light of the World in His Miracles

Seeing Jesus: The Light of the World in His Miracles

Matthew 12:22Then they brought him a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute, and Jesus healed him, so that he could both talk and see.

Have you ever stopped to think about miracles? Those amazing events in the Bible that defy explanation?

They’re more than just cool stories. Miracles are signs from God, glimpses of something beyond our world, revealing His power, wisdom, love, and glory.

Miracles aren’t limited to the Bible. They’re not reserved for the privileged or super faithful. They can happen to anyone, anywhere, in the ordinary, everyday moments of life. They’re not about showing off, but about bringing glory to God and helping His people.

Jesus: The Ultimate Miracle

The Bible tells the story of Jesus, the ultimate miracle worker. He healed the sick, raised the dead, calmed storms, and even fed thousands with just a few loaves and fishes! (Matthew 12:22, Mark 6:45-52)

He did what no one else could, demonstrating God’s power and love for humanity.

But Jesus is more than just a miracle worker. He is the miracle himself. The fulfillment of God’s promises, the embodiment of God’s love, and the expression of God’s power. Jesus, the Son of God, lived a sinless life, died on the cross for our sins, and rose from the dead – the ultimate act of love and power. (John 1:5)

Seeing Jesus Everywhere

We see Jesus reflected in His miracles, of course, but also in His words, actions, and character. His compassion, mercy, grace, and truth shine through.

He is humble, obedient, faithful, and holy. Love, joy, peace, and hope radiate from Him.

The Scriptures, the gospel, the church, and even the world around us – they all point to Jesus.

Creation, history, prophecy, and fulfillment – they all whisper His story. From the Law and the Prophets to the Psalms and the Epistles, His presence is woven throughout.

Following the Light

So how do we experience this Jesus more fully?

By faith, by the Holy Spirit, by the Word of God, and by God’s grace. We follow Him by believing in Him, trusting Him, depending on Him, and obeying Him.

Our love, worship, service, and desire to glorify Him are expressions of following Him.

Following Jesus means imitating Him, learning from Him, listening to Him, and living by His example. It means repenting of our sins, receiving His forgiveness, living in the freedom He offers, and becoming His disciple.

It’s about joining His family, participating in His mission, and belonging to His kingdom.

As we follow Jesus, we bear fruit that reflects His character, share the gifts He’s given us, use our talents for His purposes, and fulfill His will. We become reflections of His light, walking in it, shining it brightly, and sharing it with the world; and YES, YOU WILL SEE MIRACLES TOO!
