1 After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus
went up to Jerusalem.
2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in
the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered,
waiting for the moving of the water.
4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the
water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was
made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight
6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that
case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is
troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth
down before me.
8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked:
and on the same day was the sabbath.
Quit With Your Excuses
Dear one, it matters not how long
you've suffered from your condition (mentally, physically or spiritually),
Jesus wants to make you whole. In the above passage, the gentleman had
been suffering from his physical condition for 38 years but now his Maker
was on the scene. When asked if he wanted to be made whole, the man
provided Jesus poor excuses. He said every time the angel troubles the
water I either don't have anyone to put me in or just before I can get in
someone beats me to the punch and steps in before me. Neither one of
these answers were appropriate to the question Jesus was asking. The
appropriate answer was yes!
What about you? Are you
dealing with an issue that you have tried all the doctors in town and it
still hasn't been resolved? Are you struggling with habits that are
affecting your spiritual life? Are you feeling fragmented, broken and
depressed and have been for years? Jesus is saying unto you -
"Wilt thou be made whole?"
Do You Want To Be Made Whole? Don't
give Jesus a bunch of excuses about your background, your physical
limitations or your family history. Just surrender to His desire to
make you whole and watch how fast He heals you. The bible says that
immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked.
Will you be made whole too?
