Learning to Laugh Again: 7 Miraculous Signs in the Gospel of John that Point to the Smiling Face of Jesus
“There is sufficient power in the miracles of Christ, and the Christ of miracles, to enable us to live in the spirit of holy hilarity.”
A delightful look at the joy-producing miracles of Jesus in the book of John, from changing water into wine, to healing the blind man, to walking on water. These seven signposts in the Gospel of John point us to Christ, the ultimate cause of our rejoicing. Marshall Hoffman takes us beyond the miracles to their underlying message and pattern, showing how each sign points away from itself to the Lord of glory who is working in our lives. Each sign directs us to a “scenic route” that opens up a breathtaking view of Jesus’ delightful sense of humor.
Encounter a power that will lift your heart in ever-laughing life.
“All the signs point to the person of Christ who has the power to enable us to turn our frowns into smiles. We need the power of the resurrection to create a lifestyle of holy humor. By faith we can tap into the Christ of miracles, and the miracles of Christ, and find them sufficient for our needs.
“By faith in the Risen One, we can receive miraculous power to rise from our pallets of pessimism and walk the path of praise, at times leaping for joy with the precious privilege of making our incomparable Jesus the subject of our exultation.”
