A deep sense of awe came over them all, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders.” (Acts 2:43 NLT)
In 1947, welterweight boxing champion, Sugar Ray Robinson, was scheduled to fight in a prize match against Jimmy Doyle. However, Robinson had nightmares about killing Doyle in the ring, so vivid that he threatened to quit the match. Promoters went so far as to hire a priest to reassure Robinson that everything would be okay. So, on June 25, Doyle went down in the 8th with a TKO, was rushed to the hospital, and died the next day. That fight would haunt Robinson the rest of his life.
We live in a world where the supernatural happens everyday. Whether it’s good or bad, it happens: whispered warnings, spooky voices, miraculous survivals, premonitions of things, dreams… As Christians, we understand the fact that we are spiritual creatures having an earthly experience. But what about those that aren’t so aware?
As you come to church today, come ready to worship in a way that you can feel His very real presence! But be patient and able to explain the spiritual and demonic in a way that not only opens the minds of others, but invites them into a desirous, miraculous relationship with God. You are loved today! Experience it!
