Lesson from the Paralyzed

Bible Verse for today:

Mark 2:3-5 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.”

When I read this story, something jumps in my spirit. It was the faith and the tenacity in which he had. This man’s faith in Jesus went beyond his limitations he was not going to allow his condition to stop him from getting to Jesus.

Noticed how they got the man to Jesus? They dogged their way through an open roof which was closed. Close doors make us feel hopeless and discouraged?

Faith is what opens doors. Remember the scripture in Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. (That speaks of you having faith in Jesus).

The lesson that we need to get from this story of the paralyzed man is that our faith cannot be shaky it must unmovable. Faith says that you believe Jesus while tenacity says I do not care what others say no one is going to stop me; your determined to get to Jesus.

What does your faith say about you?
