Today’s Reading – John 5
What a great question – “Do you want to get well?”
The easy answer is yes, but what if you don’t know your sick?
That’s the real problem.
This man knew he was not well and wanted healed.
Jesus healed his physical problem, but also his spiritual one.
The illness is sin. The prognosis is death.
That’s been the problem from the beginning.
And yet, now there is this One who asks, “Do you want to get well?”
Well? Do you?
Aren’t you tired of all the offers to heal you – to make you feel better?
They work for awhile, but then they wear off.
This is an eternal healing.
Won’t wear off.
“Do you want to get well?”
