(Still) A God of Miracles
"I know God has done miracles. I read about them in my Bible. But do I really believe God still can? Yeah, I guess I do, but do I really believe He will?"
We can often have a right doctrine of the omnipotence of God (God is all powerful and able to do anything), but does our doctrine translate to street-theology? Meaning, do we really believe practically, in how we live our life, that God can still do anything?
This week we study two miracle stories. These two miracle stories come back to back in the book of Acts and share the same story structure. It seems in their shared structure, God wants to teach us something about the fact that He was, is, and always will be a God of miraculous power. It also seems these stories can shed some light on God's purposes in why He does the supernatural miracles He does.
