It Hard To Debate A Miracle Of God


And all the assembly fell silent, and they listened to Barnabas and Paul as they related what signs and wonders God had done through them among the Gentiles.— Acts 15:12

I love this statement, "And all the assembly fell silent."

Sometimes people of the church will argue about ridiculous things. But God knows how to kill a good argument fast by doing something miraculous. And in this situation, Barnabas and Paul would never have had signs and wonders to tell if they had not first acted in obedience. Notice that they just tell a bunch of stories of what God did as they preached the gospel from town to town. Did they have a perfect plan? No. But they acted. And God tends to get behind those who get behind them. And God did some pretty amazing things, if you remember. And with it, some believed, both Jews and even more a lot of Gentiles.

Yet note this. Your obedience stems from a miracle. The basis of your faith is the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. And as you live in obedience to him, you are a testimony to this miracle. So the story of your walk with Christ, regardless of how boring you think it is, is a testimony of faith to others. And no one can take it from you. There is nothing to argue about. So you don't need to argue with others about what you believe when you present the truth. You just need to tell them "that" you believe because regardless of their dispute. No one can take this from you. And sometimes, it will be met with silence because your life is a sign of the wonder you believe.

ASK THIS: Do you believe? (Share below.)

DO THIS: Tell others!

PRAY THIS: God, thank you for saving me. May I tell your story to all, even those who debate and dispute my belief.

    I believe… thank you for the miracle of changing my identity from my job, money and earthly material things to that of a man of Christ who serves for Him.

  2. Trent says:

    There is no other reason for the breath of life still in me. The physical truth of my continued survival of the unexplainable is very evident to all. Possibly even more miraculous is the transformation of my entire character, mostly evident to those who have known me for a long period. Or possibly the renewing of my original character masked and hidden by years of free and willful sin. I live for Him because I BELIEVE He died for me. I have been bought with a price and therefore my body and spirit are His.

  3. David Steinquist says:

    The truth can be inconvenient for us, me, at times. Joh 18:37 states: Jesus said “I was born and came into the world to testify to the truth. All who love the truth recognize that what i say is true.”

  4. Dennis says:

    I definitely believe in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I believe because I was literally saved from the grips of death by crying out to God.

  5. Chris says:

    I believe. Sometimes more than others. Right now I believe but I don’t feel it. Right now I what I feel is empty and fearful and exhausted. . I believe these feelings will change. I believe God is at work for my good. I believe God loves me and is blessing me through a difficult time. I believe one day all these feelings I don’t like will pass away. Today keep moving forward because I believe. Thanks

  7. Sam says:

    I believe and I am thankful to my heavenly father for all he has done in my life although I fall so short. I have such a small view of the permanent life to come but I know that my redeemer lives.
