The Greatest Miracle

Everyday God is saving people. God’s saving actions are an amazing miracle. You may be wondering why God’s salvation is such a miracle. Well, God doesn’t only save people. God changes people. This is what the great preacher, Charles Spurgeon said about God changing the sinner’s heart:

Did it ever strike you what a wonderful thing it is for the Lord to give a new  heart and a right spirit to a man? You have seen a lobster, perhaps, which has  fought with another lobster, and lost one of its claws, and a new claw has  grown. That is a remarkable thing; but it is a much more astounding fact that a  man should have a new heart given to him. This, indeed, is a miracle beyond the  powers of nature. There is a tree. If you cut off one of its limbs, another one  may grow in its place; but can you change the tree; can you sweeten sour sap;  can you make the thorn bear figs? You can graft something better into it and  that is the analogy which nature gives us of the work of grace; but absolutely  to change the vital sap of the tree would be a miracle indeed. Such a prodigy  and mystery of power God works in all who believe in Jesus. –Spurgeon, Charles (2009-02-14).

God is powerful enough to change the most evil people…and that includes you.
