Jesus’ Coolest Miracles

Jesus' Coolest Miracles

We live in a world where some of the most popular stories are those of superheroes and people with crazy powers. As humans, we love to be amazed and intrigued. That’s why we watch movies such as Superman or Avengers. It’s why magic shows have been around as long as they have, showcasing illusionists and why, when it’s all said and done, you don’t really want to know how the magician pulled a rabbit out of his hat.

Jesus’ ministry was full of really cool things like those. Some of the stories of what he did are things we’d expect to see from superheroes in fiction, designed to amaze and entertain.

But not only were Jesus’ miracles actual miracles – as in, he actually healed the blind and sick (John 9), actually drove out demons (Matthew 8), and actually turned plain well water into really impressive wine (John 2) – these stories aren’t fiction.

Jesus’ miracles aren’t illusions or magic tricks, and they really happened.

For shortened versions of the stories where we learn of his miracles, we can look at the Gospel of Mark.

That evening after sunset the people brought to Jesus all the sick and demon-possessed. The whole town gathered at the door, and Jesus healed many who had various diseases. He also drove out many demons, but he would not let the demons speak because they knew who he was. | Mark 1:32-34

In three short verses Mark describes how Jesus healed “many who had various diseases” after “the whole town gathered at the door.” Now, we don’t know how big the town was, but to have an entire town gather at one door means there was a large crowd, and they all wanted to know if what Jesus had done for one woman, healing, could be done for all of them.

Spoiler alert: it could be done for them, and it was.

Another time when Jesus did the seemingly impossible is when he calmed the storm.

A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him,

“Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”

He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.

He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”

They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!” | Mark 4:37-41

It’s interesting that after Jesus does what the disciples asked him to, he asks them, “Why are you so afraid?” And even after he’s asked this, they feel inclined to ask each other, “Who is this?” because they were terrified. God’s power can be scary at times, because we often don’t know how to comprehend it. We know it would be nice if the scary thing, the wind and waves, could just up and disappear, but we haven’t thought about what would happen if that did actually happen. Not only can it actually happen, but the display of power on God’s part often leads us, in our mortality, to be scared, or more aptly, terrified. But Jesus’s next question is possibly more important: “Do you still have no faith?”

At this point, he has essentially revealed who he was. He has given them ample reason, ample proof, for them to have faith in him. Yet they still don’t see it.

Let’s not be like them, at least not in this instance.

One of the most important miracles Jesus did, however, even more important than healing the sick and calming the waves, was his resurrection after the cross. Mark doesn’t continue the story as long as Matthew, Luke, and John, but he does include the vital verses that describe the empty tomb and the message from the angels.

As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.

“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’” | Mark 16:5-7

This miracle is the most important miracle, because Jesus’ death and resurrection secured our salvation from the death we chose in the Garden of Eden. (Don’t know what I’m talking about? Read about it in Genesis Chapters 1-3.)

John summed up the main point nicely in John 3:16:

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

It’s easy to want Jesus’ miracles to have happened. It’s also easy to write those miracles off as illusions or tricks. But writing them off says we don’t believe Jesus either A. tells the truth or B. is actually capable of doing what we read he did.

What we believe about his miracles directly ties into what we believe about the resurrection, and our belief about that is of eternal importance.

If you have questions about what you’ve just read, I suggest going back to the source. Take a moment to read through the Gospel of Mark, and then reach out to us. We’d love to connect with you and help you wrestle through whatever questions you may have. Send us an email so we can help you get connected to people who can help you dig deeper into the Gospel.

Part 1 | Legacy – Interview with Lawanna Busby St. Clair

ANCHOR + WAVES

A PODCAST FOR WOMEN

Part 1 | Legacy - Interview with Lawanna Busby St. Clair

by Sharon Sands | Anchor + Waves

IN THIS EPISODE

  • Always ask, “How is it with your soul?” | 6:42
  • Have a passion for finishing the race well  | 12:03
  • Life is the tale of two stories, one finite and frail the other eternal and enduring | 14:21
  • We have to take inventory of our lives through “Spirit Lead Self-Leadership” | 22:41
  • Your ministry is only going to be as healthy as your insides | 27:12

INSTANT TAKEAWAYS

1 | MAKE SURE YOU HAVE one ‘HEART FRIEND’

It is imperative that you have a safe space created where you can be completely honest with at least one ‘heart friend’ in your life. As Christians, we need someone whom we can be real, and tough, and honest, and deep, and authentic with and call each other up to God. This is someone who holds you accountable, and you them. Make sure that you have that person in your life who is constantly asking, “How is it with your soul?”, so you can sharpen your heart and your relationship with the Father.

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. | Proverbs 4:23 NIV

2 | KEEP YOUR EYES FIXED ON ETERNITY

We need to keep the focus of our stories on the one who endures, the one who matters. It is so easy for us to get caught up in the minutia of making our own stories matter. Our lives are that of a blink of an eye, yet we spend hours, days, weeks, worrying about the lasting impact we will have on things that aren’t eternal. Although the laundry has to get done and the errands have to get done, just remember to practice the presence of Jesus.

Life is the tale of two stories; one, finite and frail, the other, eternal and enduring. | Louie Giglio

3 | iron sharpens iron

The reason we have our ‘heart friends’ is so that we’re held accountable. We want that truth to be held up to us in a mirror. It is only duress that iron can sharpen iron, under difficult, uncomfortable, and pressurized circumstances are we able to become what God has intended. We all run through periods of time where we lose focus on what’s important, we fall victim to the pressures of the urgent and important. This is the time for you, or those in your life, to call you back to that stability of Christ.

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. | Proverbs 27:17 NIV

Ep. 2 | David Hegg + The Three C’s of Preaching

CLARITY

PREACHING + COMMUNICATING FOR CHURCH LEADERS

Ep.2 | David Hegg + The 3 C's of Preaching

by Craig Smith | Clarity

IN THIS EPISODE

  • The one thing David didn’t want, at an early age, was to go into preaching | 2:36
  • After not being invited back to seminary, setting foot into the corporate world | 3:25
  • How the corporate world impacted preaching and getting your ‘meaning’ from The Text | 6:19
  • What role does an extensive education play in all of this? | 10:26
  • Have confidence when you, “go against the party line” + reconciling authorial intent | 15:03
  • “Luke, I am your father” and understanding narratives | 21:39
  • Putting together sermons | 26:20
  • Your preaching should impact your life first | 28:31

INSTANT TAKEAWAYS

1 | GET YOUR MEANING FROM THE TEXT

An expositional sermon is when the content structure and emphasis of the sermon are drawn from and accurately represent the text. There’s what in it as content, and there’s also a structure in each text that the author has put in. If you put those two together, you’re going to get the emphasis. An application of this could be seen in Ephesians 2: 1 – 10. Paul’s emphasis can be seen here in verse 10, we are His workmanship! What He has done for us, has made us His “show-off-piece!”. Structure + Content = Emphasis.
– Listen starting at 9:26 –

As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. | Ephesians 2: 1 – 10

2 | PREACH THE BIBLE THE WAY IT WAS WRITTEN

If you’re going through Ephesians, read the whole thing. That book is a letter and is meant to be read in its entirety. It’s easy for a theme to get lost the further you break it down. Really push in and listen to the text; what comes before it and what comes after it. Read it and look for sign-post words, think about basic Bible Study Methods! Listen to the Word of God as The Word of God. At the end of the day, you want people to feel as if they can understand the Bible on their own. The more we put an emphasis on the preacher being essential for discerning what the Bible means, the more we’re inhibiting our congregations.  

3 | YOUR PREACHING SHOULD IMPACT YOUR LIFE FIRST

It’s so easy for us to just put something together and preach it, without being impacted by it. The more we look around us, and our brothers and sisters are falling to questionable behavior, we ask, “how can someone, who spends so much time in the Word, fall victim to something like this?” It goes from their text, into their mind, into their arm, into their computer and never impacts their heart. Don’t preach for notoriaty, don’t preach for fame, don’t preach for a big church to be “seen”, preach because your heart gets the best benefit of your study.

4 | THE 3 C’S OF PREACHING

1 // CONTENT
2 // COMMUNICATION
3 // CARE

SHOW NOTES

Welcome back to our second episode of the Clarity Podcast! We are so excited to welcome in David Hegg for this episode, who is the Senior Pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Santa Clarita, CA. David is passionate about God’s Word and believes the greatest need in the church today is for pastors to preach the Bible the way it was written. David had a little bit of an interlude in the corporate world after he was intr0duced to the world of public speaking him, that took him on a fascinating path to where he is today.

Tune in as Craig and David dive into teaching in your private and public life, the art and science of preaching as well as what it looks like to give your movement momentum.
