In a Bible class one day, a teacher asked, "What was the greatest miracle in the Bible?" A weary young father of several pre-schoolers said, "It was when Joshua told the son to stand still, and his son obeyed him!"

The Bible is full of miracles — the rescue of Israel from the Egyptians, the miracle of Jesus walking on the water, the countless healings by Jesus and his disciples, the feeding of the multitudes from a few loaves and fish, the coming of the Holy Spirit with tongues of fire on the day of Pentecost, and yes, the raising of Lazarus from the dead.

But, the greatest miracle of all is still going on today. It happens all around us every day. And that miracle is the way that Jesus can turn a sin-filled heart into a peace-filled soul. It happens to those who believe and obey, every day!

How thankful I am to Christ Jesus our Lord for considering me trustworthy and appointing me to serve him, even though I used to scoff at the name of Christ. I hunted down his people, harming them in every way I could. But God had mercy on me because I did it in ignorance and unbelief. Oh, how kind and gracious the Lord was! He filled me completely with faith and the love of Christ Jesus. (1 Timothy 1:12-14 NLT 1st Ed.)
