We say we serve a risen Savior. We say He's in the world today. Yet, periodically when He shows up we are skeptical. We wonder how an event was rigged or maybe the participants were confused or motivated to share stories to build a God they wished was real. It is all very vexing…
There was a time in my Christian life when I would quickly discount the modern day miracles of our times. It was easier to say the events shared were someone's over active imagination and that miraculous gifts were given to apostles of times past. I think there is some truth in that attitude, but not the whole truth.
I am inclined to believe miraculous events occurred in times past, because the hearts of the people were fertile for miracles. The hearts were prime for seeing God at work in very real and tangible ways. I think in America and much of the world, our hearts are not primed for the active participation of God. But, every once in a while someone comes along with a heart after God and He loves it. He chooses to actively participate in their life and those near Him.
Below is an accounting of a God Spot brilliant displayed among of people in need. You will need to choose whether you believe in a God that empowers others to raise people from the dead. It is your choice. What will you do with it?
