Preparing the Way for Jesus, Part 18

Our excitement and desire to give God credit and glory for the wonderful things he does in our lives can sometimes be heralded as miracles when in reality, these events are evidence of His tremendous grace, mercy and power. The truth is, in our effort to give God glory in all things that are good (which is noble), we may be lowering the bar that the Bible establishes for true miracles to the point that Godly miracles are unintentionally diminished in the process. Jesus was very careful concerning the miracles He performed. Not only was He careful, but at times He began to limit His miracles because they were beginning to be a distraction from His message, which was the Gospel. The miracle of redemption occurred when the perfect Son of God laid down His life for you and me over 2000 years ago.
