Four Things Jesus Does With Miracles

Jesus once fed more than 5,000 people using only five loaves of bread and two fish. With something as amazing as that, you’d be right to think that there are a number of things Jesus’ accomplishes with miracles. Here are a few:

  • Jesus’ miracles comfort people who are trapped and oppressed in the world.
  • Jesus’ miracles warn those who are too much in love with the world.
  • Jesus’ miracles show how God uses ordinary things to accomplish extraordinary ends.
  • Jesus’ miracles point to his suffering and exaltation.

I explained all this and read the record of this particular miracle in the sermon I preached last Sunday morning. Give it a listen. It’s about 30 minutes.
