What is a miracle?

John 4:43-54

January 15, 2015

What is a miracle? Jesus performs a miracle over long distance. He then says The Galileans will never believe unless they see miraculous signs and wonders. And do myself was someone who sought concrete evidence. I wanted to know, not believe. But sooner I realized this is impossible. It is called faith for a reason. But I also felt that everything was just quite spectacularly miraculous already. This universe, everything in it, and the people including myself, my thoughts and feelings, just the fact that it all even exists is unbelievable anyways.

But before I get sidetracked, what's important is how can these people who evidence believe. How did I come to believe? At a certain point, I had to make a decision and take a leap of faith, like the scene in the movie Matrix, the red pill or blue pill. I decided to try the red pill, and there's no going back. Once you know something, you can't un-know it. I can deny it, but it's different. Anyways, how can I help others take their leap of faith as well? And to help those who already took the red pill, and are getting to know?

What's most miraculous is Jesus himself. Not his gifts, but Jesus himself.
