After dark one evening, he came to speak with Jesus. Rabbi, he said, we all know that God has sent You to teach us. Your miraculous signs are evidence that God is with You. – John 3:2
A miracle is simply an extraordinary occurrence; inexplicable to the human mind or experience. Miracles are open to interpretation and therein forms the margin for disbelief. Many of the miracles we could claim in our lives are written off to coincidence or the intervention of strangers. But really, when you think about it logically, what are the statistical odds of those explanations? A miracle is an unexpected positive outcome – a negative surprise is called a tragedy.
Yet for Christians, should we ever be surprised by Gods intervention in our lives for good? All that is unexpected or inexplicable is that the Maker of the Universe would care enough to use His power to positively intervene for us. All the evidence is before us – the greatest tragedy is that we simply cant see or dont believe.
