It's A Miracle!

Teen, 17 Who Died In Christ,
Resurrected From the Dead

A San Jose, CA teenager who had been baptized into Christ Jesus and baptized into His death has been resurrected from the dead, Romans 6:4, 5 reported.

Gregory Dean Metcalf, 17, was convicted of his sin and offense against a righteous God after hearing a gospel message had been pronounced baptized into Christ’s death by the Holy Spirit.

Then, instantaneously Metcalf was resurrected to newness of life.

“Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been united together in the likeness of his death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection…” (Romans 6:4, 5, NKJV)

Larry Harper, assistant pastor and Bus Director of United Baptist Church assisted the teen in understanding the gospel in his office on Wednesday evening, April 12th, 2972. Harper declared Metcalf’s resurrection from the dead as “Another miracle by the grace of God.”

Metcalf was led to follow the Lord in believer’s baptism (immersion) on Sunday morning, April 16th, 1972. He was encouraged to live his life worthy of the One who had translated him from the Kingdom of Darkness into the Kingdom of God’s dear Son.

“Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. I am amazed, grateful, and humbled,” Metcalf said. “To God be the glory for ever and ever Amen,” he added.

The miracles of God are humble and often overlooked and under-appreciated, but they are miracles none-the-less. Jesus often rebuked people for wanting "signs" because the signs were there, they (and we) just didn't pay attention to them. They aren't glitzy and aimed to amaze our flesh, they are humble and sweet and wondrous, and none of us could make even a grain of sand, let alone flowers, birds, and all of creation....and then to reclaim what was lost! Wow! Beyond comprehension! So Amazing Grace!
