I’ve been thinking a lot recently about people.
I don’t mean specific people, though I often think about several of them. I just mean people, generally, but not humankind. OK, kind of humankind.
Specifically, I’ve been thinking about the human role in Scripture and in the Kingdom life.
To give a clue to my line of thinking, though I won’t go to great detail here (yet), I’ve been thinking that human beings are meant to be quite a bit in the Kingdom of God. Human beings are meant to be quite a bit on earth. They (we) play a huge role, and I think we’re meant to be bigger than certain streams of the church has supposed.
Along these lines, let me pose a question:
Are there miracles in the Bible that occur without any human involvement whatsoever?
Granted, the work of any miracle is an act of God, yet is there a miracle in Scripture that does not also have a human “faith step,” so to speak?
For example, God parts the sea before the Hebrews as they escape from Egypt (Exo 14), but Moses has to extend his rod. God multiplies the loaves and fishes to feed five thousand (Mk 6), but Jesus blesses the food and the disciples distribute it.
So, are there any, creation excepted, that God does without human interaction?
