Jesus Heals the Paralyzed Man | Week 15

He just wanted his life back. The paralyzed man in Mark 2 wanted things to be normal again, to be healed! To help him with his most pressing need, four friends carried him on a mat to Jesus when word spread that He was in town. But when they got there, they couldn’t even get close to Jesus because the whole town had also brought their sick and demon possessed to be healed by Him. It would have been easy to give up, but there didn’t. Instead, they went onto the roof above Jesus and dug their way through to lower their paralyzed friend in front of him. Everyone was watching. They all looked to Jesus to see what he would say. Jesus saw their faith and used this opportunity to shine light on the truth: our ultimate need is forgiveness. Learn how Jesus unfolds the reality of putting first things first because what really matters is that you are right before God.
