What's the point of a Miracle?

The point of a Miracle is to draw your attention to the One who caused it.

When asked why a man was born blind (John 9:1-3), Jesus responded, ”this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him.” Then Jesus made the blind man see.

When we hear the word ‘miracle’, many think of the spectacular kind written about in the Bible. The parting of the Red Sea, the Israelites fed with manna, Jesus walking on the water, Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. But a miracle is any event of heavenly origin that breaks the natural laws of science, illustrating the mastery of God over all things, and pointing to His authority to lead us in life.

Miracles are understandably uncommon; if they were commonplace, they would no longer be seen as exceptional, and would not attract as much attention and controversy. And so it is understandable that not everyone will be treated to one. It is not the normal way. The normal way calls for the rest of us to decide for ourselves whether we believe that the miracles we hear about are real, and if so, whether the author of miracles has proven his capability adequately that He can be trusted to guide us in our day to day lives. Think of miracles as an advertisement for God.
