Oh if only someone could lay hands on me and heal me like Peter did in Acts 3:6 when he healed the crippled man at the gate!
"...I have no silver or gold, but what I have I give you; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, stand up and walk."Miracles, healing, do they exist today in our modern world? If you watch religious television with the mega tele-evangelists you would have to think yes. But, I also know some of those "miracles" have been called in to question. With modern medicine and technological advances things that seemed "miraculous" before seem rather common place now. We have become somewhat jaded methinks in regards to miracles-we take an awful lot for granted.
What would it be like to experience that wonder and excitement again of being awed by a miracle? Better yet, what would it be like to count our blessings and be thankful for what we have? Think about it. The discovery of Penicillin was huge! Something that would kill a person before could now suddenly be cured! The Polio vaccine was miraculous. Advancements in imaging technology allow doctors to see tumors much earlier than before. Organ transplants, reconstructive surgery for our veterans, advances in cancer treatment-it wasn't all that long ago that these things were not even possible! Add to that the doctors who volunteer to go to places that do not have these technologies in order to help others who would not otherwise get help and the fact that they can actually get to these places-that's miraculous! Can you imagine what Luke would have done if he had these resources at his disposal? A faithful follower of Christ giving what he had to heal and help those who could least afford it-WOW! How cool is that to imagine?!
Healing taking place right in front of our eyes-miracles do still happen. We just need to open our eyes to see them! What an amazing world we live in!
