The Church of Jesus Christ is rooted in the truth of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ and God’s vision for mankind as communicated through scripture. It represents the kingdom of Jesus Christ as He established it here on earth; restored in glory for mankind with the same gifts, ordinances, structure and faith. The Church serves humbly as a gateway through which God’s spirit can be shared with the world. It is a spiritual home for people across the globe and a conduit for God’s blessings and miracles.
Today's Miracle Monday is a story of how Brother Michael McGuire received help from above one snowy morning.
Back in the winter of 2015, around the month of December, at about 5 a.m., I was on my way to work. It was a cold, snowy winter morning. I was about 20 minuets from work, and I was turning onto the onramp for the highway when my car slid on ice in the turn and went right off the road. I couldn't get back onto the road because I was stuck pretty good.
As we continue to prepare for the celebrations surrounding Christmas Day, it's appropriate to remember why Christ came in the first place. Today's Good Word tells us that we were not saved by our own righteous works but instead by God's mercy.
