Ellul: the reference miracle

Wednesday, April 20, 2022
    The words “it was credited to him” were written not for him alone, but also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness—for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.
    —Romans 4:23-25 (NIV)
    All miracles are simply feeble lights like beacons on our way to the port where shines the light, the total light of the resurrection. All miracles finally refer to this one and find their explanation in it. It is the miracle.
    ... Jacques Ellul (1912-1994), The Judgment of Jonah, tr. Geoffrey W. Bromiley, Grand Rapids: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1971, p. 65 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 4:23-25; Deut. 4:33-35; 29:3-6; Amos 4:6-11; Matt. 12:28; John 2:11; Acts 2:22; Rom. 1:4; 2 Cor. 13:4; 1 Thess. 4:14; 1 Pet. 1:21; Rev. 1:18
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, we praise You for Your great mercy.
