Faith, Healing, and Miracles

Faith, Healing, and Miracles

We've all heard stories of certain gifts of the Spirit being misused or even abused. Sadly, this creates misunderstanding, perhaps even fear, and possibly skepticism toward the gift.

Yet, the gifts are real and the same God who bestowed them thousands of years ago is still the same God who bestows them today!

As we consider the gifts of faith, healing, and miracles, let's view them through the lens of scripture and the heart of our God. 

Benefits of Being a Child of God

We know that one of the gifts of having a relationship with Jesus is that we become a "child of God," but what exactly does that mean and what are the benefits of being a child of God anyway?

Don't Worry About A Thing

Every person is challenged by worry and anxiety in their lives. Yet, worrying does not change our circumstances and can actually cause us emotional, physical, and spiritual harm. Worry always robs us; it never adds anything of value to our lives.

So what does the Bible teach us about an eternal perspective on anxiety and worry? How are we supposed to respond to those feelings when they begin to overwhelm us? What's the alternative?

Let's dig into the answers to those questions as we take a look at what Jesus had  to say on this subject in Matthew 6:25-24.
