Miracles in the Name of Jesus

on October 4, 2012

Last night was the first debate of the general election season between the two most prominent candidates for President of the United States. This debate was mostly about economic matters. Each of these two Candidates seems to believe that he can fix what ails the nation economically. We have a suggestion how these candidates could improve.

And there were great and marvelous works wrought by the disciples of Jesus, insomuch that they did heal the sick, and raise the dead, and cause the lame to walk, and the blind to receive their sight, and the deaf to hear; and all manner of miracles did they work among the children of men; and in nothing did they work miracles save it were in the name of Jesus. (4 Nephi 1:5)

Since Jesus is the rear source of miracles, a true disciple works miracles in His name. In the past, those true disciples have wrought many great and marvelous works. Surely the nation will be best off if whoever wins the election welcomes our Lord into the White House with him. And what of the rest of us, the citizens? Wouldn’t each of us improve, if we drew closer to the Lord? Each citizen is a miracle worker to the extent that he puts his trust in Jesus Christ, not in himself or any other mortal. Neither of those on the debate stage last night is the real savior of any citizen.
