Rest Assured

March 26, 2016

It’s the “rest assured” that made me take pause and ponder before the next sip of tea. This man who was paralyzed in life could have brought an animal to the temple and been cleared of any sin.   Clearly he had friends who would help him with that… he had friends who would cart him around on a gurney… those are good friends.

No, he did not believe he was forgiven.  He was stuck in life because he could not move forward….paralyzed.  In his mind there was no sacrifice that would suffice.

Jesus didn’t say, “I forgive you.”

He said, “your sins are forgiven.”

This guy needed to know he truly was forgiven… He need not be stuck any longer.

He could move forward.

He didn’t need to be paralyzed in that same place.

He was not the same person.

No longer paralyzed by his dis-ease… he could move.

 

One lamb was enough for this guy.

One Lamb is enough for you.

Look at the paralyzed places in your life… You don’t need more than one Lamb.

He did it. This weekend is a celebration of His success and your freedom.

That dis-ease does not need to stop you anymore.

Believe in the ability He gave you to move forward.

“Your sins are forgiven.”

    Where have you been!?! We’ve all missed these reminders of how truly good He is. Yes, we know it for ourselves, but it’s always good to have someone offer it fresh.

    Happy Easter!
