We Have Insulated Ourselves From Miracles

The Bible is full of miracles, the New Testament church experienced them on a regular basis. There are several (complementary) explanations for why that is no longer the case, but I think this explanation is the best for our time and place:

[One of my Bible teachers] told me that we have insulated ourselves from miracles. We no longer live with such reckless faith that we need them. — Shane Claiborne [1]

I pray that God might grant us a more reckless faith.
