Open to the Possibility
June 04, 2021
As world continues to change by becoming more post-Christian and adapting to a post-pandemic world, the church finds itself in a period where change is the new normal. For this season, we are looking at the book of Acts to remind ourselves how the early church followed God as God led the church into the future that was unfolding before them.
The miraculous stories of the Bible capture our attention—mostly because that’s the way we want it to work. In the story of Peter’s supernatural escape from jail we have to wonder if the miracle is what Luke wants us to focus on? Maybe not. Maybe what Luke wants us to see is that the miracle happens in the midst of ordinary events. Luke isn’t giving us a prescription for how to get the miracle, but rather, to be open to the possibility that our ordinary, everyday lives might be interrupted by an act of God.
