Scripture: John 5:1-16
1After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 2Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, in Hebrew called Beth-za'tha, which has five porticoes. 3In these lay a multitude of invalids, blind, lame, paralyzed.5One man was there, who had been ill for thirty-eight years. 6When Jesus saw him and knew that he had been lying there a long time, he said to him, "Do you want to be healed?" 7The sick man answered him, "Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is troubled, and while I am going another steps down before me." 8Jesus said to him, "Rise, take up your pallet, and walk." 9 And at once the man was healed, and he took up his pallet and walked. Now that day was the Sabbath. 10So the Jews said to the man who was cured, "It is the Sabbath, it is not lawful for you to carry your pallet." 11But he answered them, "The man who healed me said to me, `Take up your pallet, and walk.'" 12They asked him, "Who is the man who said to you, `Take up your pallet, and walk'?" 13Now the man who had been healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had withdrawn, as there was a crowd in the place. 14Afterward, Jesus found him in the temple, and said to him, "See, you are well! Sin no more, that nothing worse befall you." 15The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had healed him. 16 And this was why the Jews persecuted Jesus, because he did this on the Sabbath.
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
God wants to free us from the power of sin and make us complete. But he will not force our hand against our will. The first necessary step towards growth and healing is the desire for change. If we are content to continue as we are, then no amount of coaxing will change us. The Lord manifests his power and saving grace towards those who desire change of life in Jesus. The Lord approaches each of us with the same inquisitive question: “Do we really want to be changed, to be set free from the power of sin, and to be transformed in our holiness?” Loving Infant Jesus put within our heart a burning desire to be changed and transformed in your holiness. Let your Holy Spirit change our heart and renew us in your love and righteousness.
