Miracle of Christmas #1

Miracle of Christmas #1

The Miracle of the Moment

Galatians 4:4-7

A Miracle is a wonderful event caused by God that brings Him glory and demonstrates His purposes and plan.

  • Don’t miss the miracle of THAT moment.
  • Don’t miss the miracle of THIS moment.

#1 A MOMENT LIKE NONE OTHER.

When the time came to completion, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba, Father!” So you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God. Galatians 4:4-7 (HCSB)

 

#2 EMBRACING THE HUMANITY OF OUR SAVIOR.

For we do not have a High Priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have One who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet He did not sin.  Hebrews 4:15 (NIV)

#3 TRUSTING GOD WITH YOUR MOMENTS.

He tends his flock like a Shepherd:
He gathers the lambs in His arms
and carries them close to His heart;
He gently leads those that have young.
Isaiah 40:11 (NIV)

Miracle Defined

Miracle Defined

Miracles happen in the ordinary and the extraordinary. Albert Einstein said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as if nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is.”

There are moments that God breaks through the ordinary for His glory.

A miracle is a wonderful event caused by God, that brings Him glory and demonstrates His purposes and plan.

Remembering the miracles of God in the ordinary moments of life and praising Him for the extraordinary events He preforms brings Him glory and praise.
