The bible contains many examples of Jesus, and his disciples performing miracles. Most of the New Testament is compiled of miracles, discipleship and Christ’s exemplary lifestyle. We can see through Christ’s actions how we as Christians are commanded to treat, not just other individuals, but individuals with disabilities. In Micah 4:6-7 God proclaims his covenant to Zion and states that he will resort the nation of Israel. The restoration process includes Gods restoration of the disabled. In Micah we can see God, through the prophet Micah, stating, “In that day, declares the Lord, I will assemble the lame and gather the outcasts, even those whom I have afflicted. I will make the lame a remnant and the outcasts a strong nation, and the Lord will reign over them in Mount Zion From now on and forever (Micah 4:6-7).” Micah reveals God consciousness of individuals with disabilities and His promise to raise up those who are “crippled” weather it be mentally, physically or spiritually, and restore them in the name of Jesus, for the kingdom of God. Micah not only reveals the promise of God’s impending restoration, but the power of salvation in Christ and the importance of obtaining a relationship with Christ. We can see a promise that God will restore the “lame”, but its important to remember that he is referring to Christians. Not everyone will be restored in the second coming, but Micah gives us a glimpse of Christ’s compassion for individuals with disabilities. Another exposure
