I love A Course In Miracles. People of faith live in acceptance of them – kind of make things easy and convenient to explain – even daily events we may not normally need to.
It may even bring a lot of positive outlook and enthusiasm to life, which could otherwise, be dreary and dry.
The happy parents looking lovingly at their newborn and feeling so grateful for having the love child of their lives, may say – “…it’s a miracle!”
The toddler that he becomes falls down unscathed, and they say, “…it’s a miracle!”
He grows up taller and bigger than them after only 13 short years, and they remark, “…it’s a miracle!”
So, there’s a lot of other things in our daily that we can attribute miracles to.
The word “miracle”, however, can only be used appropriately when describing events that lack rational or scientific explanation.
It is an integral part of Christian life, however, dwindling.
It is equated with being a faithful one, especially when it means believing “…in the things unseen.”
Of all the miracles recorded in the Bible, and there are many, the core miracle that makes Jesus different from anyone, was His birth – born of a virgin, “begotten” of God (which, interpreted, means, born without a human or biological father; the process, being a spontaneous one.) And this is taken as a reason, if not the believer’s proof of Jesus’ divinity that sets Him apart from the rest of humanity, who are, in religious terms, conceived in “unrighteousness”.
