Magicians are amazing, aren’t they? They perform illusions and sleight-of-hand tricks that are so entertaining. We keep thinking, “How’d they do that?” But magicians don’t perform miracles. Miracles are different than magic tricks. For example, can you imagine someone walking up to an embalmed body at a funeral and putting life back into the dead body? Now that would be a miracle! And that’s exactly the type of thing Jesus did.
Luke 7:11-17 says, “Soon afterward, Jesus went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went along with him. As he approached the town gate, a dead person was being carried out–the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the town was with her. When the Lord saw her, his heart went out to her and he said, ‘Don’t cry.’
Then he went up and touched the coffin, and those carrying it stood still. He said, ‘Young man, I say to you, get up!’ The dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave him back to his mother.
16 They were all filled with awe and praised God. “A great prophet has appeared among us,” they said. “God has come to help his people.” 17 This news about Jesus spread throughout Judea and the surrounding country.
We have a Lord who promised to raise each of us from the dead someday. Spread the news!
