The New Normal

the Bible and healingWhen Jesus came as the Son of Man, it was to show us how to live in His Father’s kingdom. He was releasing a new normal for us to follow. 

John the Baptist sent people to ask if Jesus was the One. The blind see and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up and the poor have the gospel preached to them. (Matt 11:5) Jesus described what we are called to do because He was the One.

It was normal for Jesus to do miraculous things, just as it became normal for the disciples. The only reason it’s not normal for us is because we have made the decision that it’s not. The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead lives in us. (Rom 8:11) We have all it takes to live “normal” lives.

If you don’t see yourself opening blind eyes or raising the dead, why not? Fear? Fear is not of God, renounce it. Ask for the faith that you need to live as you are called to live. If you belong to Jesus, you live in His kingdom and the normal way of the kingdom should be normal for you. Go ahead and step out. You will change the lives of people who need help and it will explode your faith.
