He Saw

When Jesus SAW him lying there, and knew that he had already been a long time in that condition he said to him, “Do you wish to get well?’

Jesus noticed.

Jesus asked a question.

Jesus listened.

“Get up, pick up your pallet, and walk” Immediately the man became well and picked up his pallet and began to walk.

Sometimes we need steps.

First we have to do one thing before we can get to the next.

Jesus shows us the way.

“Afterward, Jesus found him in the temple.”

Jesus seeks us out even after we’ve been healed.

Jesus keeps pursuing us.

Jesus wants us to experience the abundant life.

-John 5:6, 8, 14

What’s Jesus doing in your life?

For me…

He’s asking me to trust. To trust BIG. Practically, that means surrendering some “good things” in order to fully accept whatever He has and trust that God alone is better than anything here.
