Acts 5:12-16 NIV
The apostles performed many signs and wonders among the people. And all the believers used to meet together in Solomon’s Colonnade. 13 No one else dared join them, even though they were highly regarded by the people. 14 Nevertheless, more and more men and women believed in the Lord and were added to their number. 15 As a result, people brought the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and mats so that at least Peter’s shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by. 16 Crowds gathered also from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing their sick and those tormented by impure spirits, and all of them were healed.
Acts 16:9-10 NIV
During the night Paul had a vision of a man of Macedonia standing and begging him, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.” 10 After Paul had seen the vision, we got ready at once to leave for Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them.
1 Corinthians 1:7 indicates that God will continue to work supernatural signs and wonders until Christ returns. Divine signs and wonders may so impact lives that unbelievers will be open to the Good News of the Lord Jesus. In many Muslim nations closed to Christian missionaries, reports of Jesus appearing and speaking to people in dreams has become a common testimony for some new Christians.
Are there times in which we neglect to seek for these signs to aid the mission of evangelism?
Can you think of a time in which God dramatically impacted you or a loved one with a supernatural sign or wonder?
Will you pray for God to give you the needed love and courage to step out in faith for the miraculous?
Will you pray that God would increase His giving of dreams and visions to aid the Church’s local and global mission
