04/07 Matthew 9:3-8
But some of the teachers of religious law said to themselves, “That’s blasphemy! Does he think he’s God?” 4 Jesus knew what they were thinking, so he asked them, “Why do you have such evil thoughts in your hearts? 5 Is it easier to say ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or ‘Stand up and walk’? 6 So I will prove to you that the Son of Man has the authority on earth to forgive sins.” Then Jesus turned to the paralyzed man and said, “Stand up, pick up your mat, and go home!” 7 And the man jumped up and went home! 8 Fear swept through the crowd as they saw this happen. And they praised God for sending a man with such great authority.
Jesus wasn’t a good man. He wasn’t just a great prophet. He was God in the flesh. God came to live among us and we didn’t recognize Him. Please right now if you have never asked Jesus to forgive you of your sin and save you do it now. If you are searching, ask Jesus for forgive you right now. If you are struggling, ask Jesus to fix your struggle. Jesus is God.
