Today we all stayed home from church because we don’t want to spread our sick germs. Anyway at lunch we talked and found the Gospel in Mathew 9:1-8 which talks about the paralyzed man who was brought to Jesus by his friends. Jesus told the man that his sins were forgiven which made the pharisees think that Jesus was blaspheming. Jesus asked them why they had evil thoughts in their hearts and then asked them what was easier, telling the man that his sins are forgiven, or telling him to get up and walk. Then Jesus tells the man to get up, pick up his mat and go home, and the paralyzed man obeys!
So, to keep it simple, Jesus was able to forgive and heal that man. And we can be forgiven, or healed of our sins, too because of Jesus’ sacrifice. We can be forgiven because Jesus died for us on the cross, thank you Jesus!
Today I’m keeping it short because I’ve got a cold, but I hope you can still benefit from this!
