A person cannot experience miracles without being in a dire situation that requires one, says Mark Batterson, lead pastor of National Community Church in Washington, D.C.
His new book, The Grave Robber, focuses on seven miraculous signs of Jesus found in the Gospel of John and how God can perform greater miracles today. He illustrates how these miracles are a result of a critical need and an unwavering faith.
Throughout the book, Batterson, who is also the New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker, shares stories of miracles that occur on a daily basis to those that leave a lasting impact. Among the stories, Batterson tells of a boy whose ear was completely regenerated after being eroded by disease, and that of a chance encounter on a plane that saves two lives, among other testimonies. more >>
T.D. Jakes, Perry Noble, Nick Vujicic and Jentezen Franklin were among the numerous participants of the "ALS Ice Bucket Challenge" that's been sweeping online social networks. The stunt was being used to raise funds to support continued research into treating and curing Lou Gehrig's Disease.
Participants of the "ALS Ice Bucket Challenge" record a video of themselves being doused with a bucket of ice-cold (or icy) water. Participants also state which individuals they are nominating for the challenge. If a person who is called out for the challenge fails to accept within 24 hours, they are then expected to donate $100 to an ALS organization (although some do both the challenge and make a donation).
An example of the "ALS Ice Bucket Challenge" can be seen in the video below of Jakes, pastor of The Potter's House in Dallas, Texas: more >>
