The Three Miracles of Christian Faith

Meditation for Easter Sunday:
The faith of Christians is based on three miracles.

Firstly, the miracle that the mighty God, creator of heaven and earth and all that is in them, would voluntarily give up his glory and come to live among us as a human being, and suffer and die for all the sins that will ever be committed by us poor creatures.

Secondly, the miracle that by the power of God, he overcame death itself, and rose again, thus ensuring the promise that those who belong to him will also rise one day to eternal life with him.

Thirdly, the miracle that us poor creatures, who committed the sin that he paid for, are offered the forgiveness that we need in order to be fit for heaven one day, and in the mean time live in newness of life, empowered to serve him and our fellow men.

The words ‘thank you’ are just not adequate.

About Ann Marie Thomas

Married since 1974, Christian since 1986, 4 children, 4 grand children, disabled with fibromyalgia but was working almost full time until a stroke in May 2010 changed my life completely. Writing poetry and making up stories since I was a child, I only started to write seriously when my children were grown. My main ambition is to write science fiction, but along the way I got distracted by local history and poetry about my stroke. Taking early retirement gave me the chance to concentrate on my writing. My book, Alina, The White Lady of Oystermouth, was published in print and ebook at Easter 2012. The success of Alina led to the publication of Broken Reed: The Lords of Gower and King John in September 2013, and The Magna Carta Story at Easter 2015. I am still writing science fiction - a series of novels called Flight of the Kestrel. For all my author news, see me author blog at www.annmariethomas.me.uk
