A Miracle


Have you ever said to yourself, where are the miracles of today? Or wouldn't it be something if we were able to witness a miracle in today's day and age? What was it like to be in the presence of our Lord during His Transfiguration (which we celebrate today) or at His first miracle at the Wedding in Cana? Without a doubt, that water became wine to all who witnessed His first public miracle, and to all who called themselves followers of Christ.

Then it happened. This morning, as we knelt for the consecration of the Holy Gifts. We too witnessed a miracle. In fact, the greatest of all miracles. The same One who was capable of transforming water into wine, displayed His glory again and continues to do so for us in every Divine Liturgy of the Orthodox Church. He accepts the bread and wine from our hands, and offers us Himself in return. How? By miracle.

Just as the disciples, we too become eyewitnesses of His majesty (Peter 1:10-19)

Therefore, if you believe in the God who transformed the water into wine, and you have faith that He transforms the bread and wine into His body and blood, then do not hesitate to believe that He too can transform your sinful flesh into His glory.

"We shall walk, O Lord, in the light of the glory of Thy countenance: and in Thy name shall we rejoice all the day" (Psalm 88:16-17)
