SCRIPTURE – Today’s video is based on Mark 2:1-12. Here’s an excerpt: “He said to the paralytic, ‘I say to you, rise, pick up your mat, and go home.’ He rose, picked up his mat at once, and went away in the sight of everyone. They were all astounded and glorified God, saying, ‘We have never seen anything like this.’” Mark 2:11-12
REFLECT – Can God do the miraculous? I believe the answer is yes and that He is still doing the miraculous, but sometimes we miss the miracles. This Lent will you continue to open your eyes to what God is doing in your life? The friends of the paralytic bring him to Jesus with expectant hearts. Let us believe that and trust that God wants to bring healing to us.
SHARE – Don’t give up on your friends who feel far from God. Like the determined friends who brought the paralytic to Jesus, continue to pray for those family members and friends by name who are distant from the church and Jesus.
PRAY – Jesus, I give you permission to heal my heart. I believe you can and are doing miracles in the world today. Help me to see them and help me to be like the friends of the paralytic in bringing others to you. Help me to be bold like them. I love you. I give you this day. Amen.
