When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had already been there a long time, he said to him, “Do you want to be healed?” (John 5:6 ESV)
Seems like a crazy question, “Do you want to be healed?”, but is it? Sometimes we want to hang on to some of the pain of our past. Sometimes this healing process is more painful than we thought and it may be easier to stay sick, but don’t do it! Jesus is still in the healing business – it’s not always easy, but it’s worth it. Stay committed to your healing and you will come out stronger and with more passion for the purpose God created you for. Yes, Jesus still heals and He wants to heal each of us.
