From Mark 5:1-20. When Jesus came to announce the Kingdom of God, he declared his lordship through miracles. Some of those miracles included specific encounters with the forces of darkness – a war with Satan and his demons. Some modern people are skeptical of the very idea of supernatural power. However, the life and teachings of Jesus include numerous direct encounters with spiritual darkness. What does this mean for us today?
From John 2:1-11. What can we learn about the glory of God revealed in Christ through the story of Christ’s turning water into wine?
We long to find meaning and significance in being part of something greater than ourselves. What if participating in the ordinary is something extraordinary?
From Matthew 8:28-34. This story of Jesus’ delivering a man from a host of demons may be one of the most bizarre in the Gospels, and yet, bizarre though it is, it’s filled with theological truths that cross centuries and cultures and speak into our lives even today. This account shows us something important regarding the nature of evil and also the nature of the One who takes it on and conquers it.
In Matthew 9:1-8, we see Jesus performing another healing miracle, this time healing a paralytic man. But the healing goes beyond that – Jesus offers the man a “deep healing,” and the great news is that He offers it to us, too!
