JESUS HIMSELF WAS A MIRACLE. More than what he did or said was what he was and is. That living presence still shows us supremely the heart and face of God. That gentle, loving touch still reaches through time and space to touch our deepest need.
Because Jesus is miracle, we too become miracles, living in God’s realm that Jesus called the kingdom. We do not have to die to enter God’s kingdom; it is already at work on earth — unfolding, expanding, healing, bringing new life. God’s kingdom is the realm in which daily miracles on all levels are a natural occurrence.
