You are the Great Physician who has the power to heal and forgive our sins. I pray Lord that we as disciples of Christ would follow the example of those who did not quit when a paralytic needed healing. They carried a man who had no use of his legs to the feet of Jesus. To get there they had to find their way through the masses of people who gathered to hear Jesus teach. When they couldn’t find a way through to the house, they persevered and went on top of the house. They went so far as to remove the roof in order that this man be healed. They lowered him through the roof to receive healing from Jesus. Let us be more and more like the people carrying the paralytic. Let us serve others in such a self-less manner that the world can see Your glory. Let us not seek validation or accolades but let the glory go to our God. Show us the paralytic in our neighborhood, our workplace, or our every day places. Whisper to us what You would have us do in Your name and then send us Jesus. Let our service be a Testament to Your goodness and mercy. In Jesus name, AMEN.
When they could not come near Him due to the crowding, they uncovered the roof where He was. When they had broken it open, they let down the bed on which the paralytic lay. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven you.”
