“There is a deep healing we all need, and that only Jesus can provide.”

July 14, 2019

John’s retelling of Jesus healing a paralyzed man and then encountering the religious authorities in a temple teach us about who Jesus is and what he has come to do. Far from just healing a man and leaving, he both chases the man down later and encounters the religious authorities. In both situations, we find Jesus pointing them away from where they thought they’d find wholeness, and pointing them to himself instead.

Application Questions

  1. What are the situations you try to get into to find wholeness in your life?
  2. Do you understand your relationship with Jesus as based entirely on his grace?
  3. How are you tempted to get Jesus to partner with you to get what you desire? How  would your life look different if Jesus was what you desired most?
