I AM AN 80 YEAR OLD MALE, BORN AGAIN, CHRISTIAN WITH A LOVE FOR JESUS. I DO NOT GET OUT MUCH ANYMORE BUT FIND THAT TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE LOVE JESUS HAS FOR THEM IS NOT ONLY WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO BUT SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD NEEDS.

"HAVE YOU THE FAITH TO DO MIRACLES?" BY DAVID MCMILLEN
HAVE YOU EVER THOUGH ABOUT WHY JESUS DID SO MANY MIRACLES? HIS STATEMENT IN JOHN 4:48 GIVES US A CLUE WHEN HE SAYS "Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe." I AM ASSUMING THAT "signs and wonders" ARE MIRACLES AS HE HAD JUST FINISHED CHANGING WATER INTO WINE AT THE WEDDING IN CANA. WHILE HE WAS THERE, A NOBLEMAN ASK HIM TO COME TO CAPERNAUM AND HEAL HIS SON. JESUS KNEW THE MANS FAITH AND SAID "Go thy way; thy son liveth". THE MAN HAD FAITH TO BELIEVE JESUS AND JUST WENT HOME, KNOWING HIS SON WAS HEALED. THAT IS THE FAITH JESUS WANTS ALL OF US TO HAVE.
WITH WHAT JESUS SAID ABOUT MIRACLES, HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHY HIS DISCIPLES ASKED HIM TO TEACH THEM TO PRAY INSTEAD OF HOW TO DO MIRACLES? THAT IS WHAT IT SAYS IN LUKE 11:1 And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. HE WAS THE GREATEST MIRACLE WORKER AND PREACHER WHO EVER LIVED BUT I BELIEVE THE DISCIPLES KNEW JESUS' PRAYER LIFE WAS EVEN GREATER THAN ANYTHING ELSE AND IT GAVE HIM THE POWER TO DO WHAT HE DID. HE GOES ON TO TEACH THEM WHAT WE CALL "THE LORD'S PRAYER".
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
