May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13
Word: Mark 2: 1 – 12
Some men came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them. Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Verses 3 – 5.
Jesus came not only to heal physical problems but also to solve the sin problem. If we have not yet come to know Jesus, we are paralyzed in spirit, as powerless to help ourselves as was this paralyzed man. If our faith is still too weak to carry us to the point of healing, the faith of “four friends” may be enough to get us there. Adapted from Every Man’s Bible, Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.
