Jellett: asking for a miracle?

Monday, March 23, 2015
    Immediately Jesus knew in his spirit that this was what they were thinking in their hearts, and he said to them, “Why are you thinking these things? Which is easier: to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up, take your mat and walk’? But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins...” He said to the paralytic, “I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.”
    —Mark 2:8-11 (NIV)
    The truth is that, to ask God to act at all and to ask Him to perform a miracle, are one and the same thing.
    ... John Hewitt Jellett (1817-1888), The Efficacy of Prayer, London: Macmillan, 1878, p. 41 (see the book)
    See also Mark 2:8-11; Matt. 9:4-6; 10:29; Luke 5:22-24; John 7:21-24; 10:24-26,32; 1 Cor. 1:22-23; 12:28
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, that You have saved me is a miracle.
