(Mark 2: 1 to 5 – A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home. 2 They gathered in such large number that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them. 3 Some men came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them. 4 Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. 5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”)
(Mark 2: 11 & 12 – 11 “I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.” 12 He got up, took his mat and walked out in full view of them all. This amazed everyone and they praised God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this!”)
Jesus might be in the house and we would be hearing and knowing a lot about Him daily. But, then we are unable to go near Him or feel His presence. This is when our soul is in a bedridden condition for which reason can be any like some sort of anger, depression, guilt or an addiction. These will not allow us to get closer to Him. It will be like all our known ways are getting blocked.
But this is the time when God wants our “FAITH IN ACTION”. This is when Jesus wants us to do the most unusual and weird thing.“The Roof to be removed”
We need to break off the roof of our ego, negative attitude, and outer mask and bring ourselves down to Him. Our knowledge or tips from Google cannot get us out of that bed of weakness, self-pity, and worthlessness. But we can always lower down to Him as a whole, our self along with our burden and our whole situation.
(Mathew 11: 28 – Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.)
He is the best doctor and He does the most unique treatment; He will heal our soul first for an eternal life and then the body to fulfill this earthly life.
All Praise the Glory to His Name!
God bless you all!
