It’s easy to be negative, critical, to complain about life…
When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had already been there a long time, he said to him, “Do you want to be healed?”
The truth is, the cure is here. Jesus is the answer to all that life throws our way. We have no cause for frustration, for disappointment, for a critical spirit. Oh sure, every single one of us excel in these areas, and we have to constantly remind ourselves of our victory in Jesus. Imagine the Lord similar to the way he would respond to Peter “don’t you trust me? Am I not enough?”
What an amazing thing, Jesus brings healing, not only physically and permanently one day through the resurrection, but for all of life… you just have to want it. “Do you want to be healed?” Let him.
