John 5-6

John 5:6 When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, "Do you want to get well?"

HEY this is for me...this ponderable....the whole of it.......not any kind of an accusation for anyone.....

love, love, love this story for two reasons:

1-"I have no one to put me in the pool when the water is stirred up.." -typical of our excuses to God

2-Jesus said, "Stand up. Take up your mat and walk." -like he hadn't tried that before. Jesus called him to trust over listening to his feelings. do you think he felt differently when Jesus asked him to stand? probably not.

you have interesting thoughts, i'll be back!
