Today's Good News


08/14 John 5:7-9
“I can’t, sir,” the sick man said, “for I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred up. While I am trying to get there, someone else always gets in ahead of me.” 8 Jesus told him, “Stand up, pick up your sleeping mat, and walk!” 9 Instantly, the man was healed! He rolled up the mat and began walking! But this miracle happened on the Sabbath day.
Jesus wanted to know if the man wanted a miracle. He already knew the situation. He didn’t need the man’s excuses. He simply wanted to know if the man wanted to be healed. Jesus responded with healing in spite of the man’s alibi. Don’t trip your self up simply listen to Jesus and respond to what He asks. Jesus is Lord, He is here and we need Him in our heart.
