Miracles are not merely superhuman happenings, but happenings that demonstrate God’s power. Jesus performed miracles to renew people – restoring sight, making the lame to walk, even restoring life to the dead. Believe in Him, not because He is a superhuman, but because He is God, graciously renewing His creation. Although God does not always choose to bring full restoration this side of heaven, God does have a special concern for the poor, the weak, the crippled, the orphaned, the blind, the lame, and the oppressed. Our concern should be like God’s – to care for the powerless in society by bringing Christ’s message of redemption in both our words and actions.
