…from glory to glory

Through the Roof…

…Jesus the Healer 

“Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’?”… 

The most paralyzing disease is our rebellion against God which cripples our hearts from knowing Him and separates us from His LIFE…

(THE GOSPEL PROJECT FOR KIDS – SUMMER 2017)

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases…”

Psalm 103.2-3

Bible Passage: Mark 2.1-12; Luke 5.17-26

Jesus was teaching in a house full of people, when suddenly the ceiling opened up and four men lowered a paralyzed man through the hole down to the place where Jesus stood…

When He saw the great trust these men had in His power, Jesus told the paralyzed man that his sins were all forgiven…

Jesus’ answer was a huge surprise to everyone, because they did not realize that He has all of the authority of God—to heal the body and to release a person from God’s punishment for sin…

In this room in Capernaum stood Jesus: Messenger of the Kingdom of God, Son of God and the Heir to the Kingdom of God…

And the Heir to the Kingdom of God, whom His own people had rejected,  knew He would take the man’s sins upon Himself on the cross–an act of love that would cost Him His life.
