Good morning! This morning on the prayerline we discussed “What keeps you Paralyzed, Lame and Blind” John 5:1-15; Matthew 25:31-40; 3John 2. There are many in the church today who wait, metaphorically speaking, by the pool of Bethesda hoping to be carried into the pool of Healing Waters. The meaning of Healing: the process of making or becoming sound or healthy again. The Biblical meaning: To cure of a disease or wound and restore to soundness or to that state of body in which the natural functions are regularly performed. The man was waiting at the pool; paralyzed for 38 years; Desiring to get in. As you read the versus it show that the paralyzed man when Jesus came to visit him had three excuses: 1. excuse was I have no one to help me to the pool, 2. I’m trying to get in, 3. someone else goes down ahead of me. How many of us today who are suffering from inner diseases that keep us physically stuck! What are some things that keep you sick? What are the excuses keep you sick? This morning Jesus is telling you to get up pick up your mat and walk! Change your mindset, Renew your mind this morning speak out what is keeping you sick, speak out those diseases that’s keeping you paralyzed or that causes, Dis-ease in your life. Jesus Is Our Savior and he comes to save us from all our troubles, but we have to want to put in the work to get to the healing that he and yourself desires. In Isaiah 53:5 “He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our Peace was upon him and with his stripes we are Healed. Jesus Christ had learned about and experience what we suffer so that he could know according to the flesh how to give assistance to his people according to their infirmities. Jesus Christ is the only one who can heal us. Today Get UP! RISE And walk go claim the Peace of God that surpasses all our understanding and enjoy the Freedom that he Planned for you before you was born! Be Blessed
Amen! I wish I could say all that was said on the prayerline but God knows!!
