The Miracles of Jesus (2-2-2012)

As we work to teach our children about Jesus we can use the wonder and power that come with His miracles. Jesus’ miracles prove to us that He is God, and that He loves us and is on a mission to restore His creation. Miracles still happen today – spend some time with your kids looking for God’s miracles in the world and in your life.

Liar, Lunatic, or Lord
~ C.S. Lewis

The idea of Jesus being a liar, lunatic, or Lord comes from C.S. Lewis. He does an amazing job putting forth this concept in his book “Mere Christianity”. The video below is a reading from the book on this concept.
