THIS MONTH'S SERIES: MIRACLES
In a world that has unfortunately redefined, renamed, resisted, and failed to recognize the historical and present miracles of the Christ, we must refuse to conform. Instead, we must choose to believe. All this month at the Eleven we will discuss miracles in all their forms and wonders, and by faith, receive even more miracles. In preparing for this month's series on Miracles, I was looking into the modern dictionary definitions of the word miracle. Mostly what I found hinted at a divine intervention or eluded to a divine agency. It sounded like there was a big corporate building somewhere in D.C. that if you wrote the right letter, knew the right people, or wore the proper attire, you may get an appointment. And if you were lucky enough they just might come to you. So, I found myself researching historical dictionary definitions of the word and the early 1800's work of Noah Webster (the definition below) caught my attention. The divine was better described as the Divine and the Divine had a name, Jesus, the Christ. MIR'ACLE, n. [L. miraculum, from miror, to wonder.] 1. Literally, a wonder or wonderful thing; but appropriately. 2. In theology, an event or effect contrary to the established constitution and course of things, or a deviation from the known laws of nature; a supernatural event. Miracles can be wrought only by Almighty power, as when Christ healed lepers, saying, "I will, be thou clean," or calmed the tempest, "Peace, be still.” 3. Anciently, a spectacle or dramatic representation exhibiting the lives of the saints. 4. To make wonderful. Mindy and I love you, are praying for you, and look forward to seeing you at the Eleven. We also commend and congratulate all our graduates! -Pastor Jason Linkous
