Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralyzed man, “My child, your sins are forgiven.
Mark 2:5 (NLT)
Jesus was in town. This group of men knew what that meant. They ran and got their paralyzed friend put him on a cot and came to the Savior. They heard that He could heal the sick, so they stepped out in faith. When they got to the house where Jesus was, they couldn’t get in. Undaunted, they cut a hole in the roof and lowered their friend into the room where Jesus was. Jesus was amazed at their faith, so He said, “My child, your sins are forgiven?” Why did He say that? Didn’t Jesus see that the man was paralyzed? Of course, He did. But Jesus saw another kind of paralysis, the kind that cripples the soul. Jesus said, “Your sins are forgiven” because that is His first priority. In order to prove He could forgive sins, Jesus also said, “Stand up, pick up your mat, and go home!” Today, what has you paralyzed? Is it fear, anger, or debt? Perhaps it’s a crippling sin. Whatever it is, bring it to Jesus. Come to Him by faith and let Him minister to you.
Jesus, You know the needs I have. I come to You and ask for supernatural power to work in me. Help me, heal me, make me whole.
