In this first message of five on miracles in Luke’s Gospel, consideration is given to the primary purposes behind Jesus’ miracles.  Then, in Luke 7, two miracles are examined: one involving faith as a center-piece of the story; the other where faith isn’t even mentioned.  Two primary applications follow: First, that we cannot put God in a box.  He works as He wills, in his time, for his purposes. Second, it pleases God greatly when we exercise faith (belief, trust) in Him.
