A Message from Pastor Fred Mast

Greetings to our Sedona UMC Family & Friends,

But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

—John 14:26—

Albert Einstein Once said, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” I was asked recently, “Pastor Fred, does God still do miracles, like back in biblical times? If God does, why doesn’t God do more of them? Maybe more people would believe in God if He did.”

God is not limited, and God is certainly able to work in miraculous ways today just as God did in biblical times, if God so chooses. If God didn’t, why would we bother to continue to pray when a loved one falls ill or when some other calamity in life comes calling our name?

Much of what God does in this world is hidden from us, or we just don’t recognize it. Think, for example, of the work God has given the Holy Spirit to do on our behalf. Occasionally the Holy Spirit may make God’s presence known to us, but for the most part, they’re hidden from us, and only in heaven will we understand how we were truly watched over, protected, and delivered from danger and blessed. Much of what the Spirit does could easily be labeled as miracles. The Bible says, “Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?” (Hebrews 1:14).

Our conversation continued, “Pastor, would more people believe in God or in Christ if they saw a miracle with their own eyes?” Not necessarily. Many would discount and look for other more “practical” explanations excluding the possibility of a miracle. Countless people saw Jesus per-form miracles, yet they refused to believe in Him or to give their lives over to Him. Don’t let this be true of you!

In July, I will bring a series of messages based on “The Miracles of Jesus” and my hope is we might discover again the unconditional, unmerited, unlimited love that God shows to us through the person of Jesus Christ and today through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit among us.

The greatest miracle of all is the miracle of a changed life — and this can happen, as we open our hearts and lives to Christ. Do others see Christ in you — His Love, His compassion, His purity, & His joy? May we come alive in Christ once again, and may the power of God’s Holy Spirit be upon us, our communities, and this world, and may it become the miracle of God’s transforming power in you!

Grace & Peace,
Pastor Fred
