The Miracles of Jesus Lesson 01 – Remember Where You Came From

Christians almost take for granted that Jesus performed so many miracles during His time on earth. Have you ever asked yourself why Jesus performed those miracles?

Let’s read together John 4:48-54

Jesus did everything with intentionality.  Jesus did not perform miracles to entertain people.  Jesus performed miracles so people would believe He was the Messiah.

The reason Jesus did not perform miracles for Herod is Herod did not believe.  If Herod truly believed, he would not have killed John the Baptist.

In this series we will study the miracles of Jesus.

Let’s read together Mark 2:1-12 and John 5:1-15.

In these two passages Jesus healed a paralytic who was let down from a ceiling and a paralytic lying by the pool of Bethesda.  In both these passages, Jesus asked three things of the paralytic:

1. Rise

2.Take up your bed

3. Walk

Actions #1 and #3 make sense.  However, why action #2?  Why did Jesus ask each paralytic to take up his bed?  Wouldn’t it be better to throw the bed away, which was a symbol of their sins and suffering?

Let’s read together Ezekiel 16:62-63.

Jesus wanted them to repent of their sins, but he also wanted them to remember where they came from. Why?

Let’s read together Luke 7:36-50.

When you realize how sinful you were before Jesus came into your life, you will be more appreciative of His saving grace.

Friend, as you walk and grow with Jesus, will you remember where you came from?
