Dear Jim

What could the reasons that we as common people cannot perform the miracles performed by Lord Jesus Christ ?

is it because of the following reasons ?

1. Lord Jesus Christ had Love, Compassion, Brotherhood, Charity, Peace, Showing Mercy, Kindness and so other noble qualities which we as common people do not possess.
2. Lord Jesus Christ didn't had any of this evil qualities viz
Greed, Lust, Jealousy, Anger, Hatred which lead to commit sins
in our life.
3. We as common people are born with worldly things viz money, material etc, Lord Jesus Christ was not bounded by those worldly things.

Can you please share your views on this ?

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

   None of these.  When Jesus sent his 12 disciples out to preach, they also healed the sick -- they worked miracles -- all 12 of them (Luke 9:6).  This included Judas, who betrayed him, James and John, who wanted the first place, Peter, who would deny him three times, and all of them argued among themselves about their position in the Kingdom.
   The reason the 12 could heal the sick was because Jesus gave them that power.  The power to work miracles and wonders does not come from us and our excellence.  It is entirely given to us by God, in spite of our lack of good qualities.  God uses who he wants, how he wants.  The power to do wonders is entirely a gift, just like the forgiveness of sins, without reference to our excellence.  Luke 10:17-20 emphasizes the danger of focusing on the ability to do miracles.  Instead, we should focus on the salvation which God has provided to unworthy recipients.
   I hope this is helpful,
