And, behold, they brought to Him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee. And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth. And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts? For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk? But that ye may know that the Son of Man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith He to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house. And he arose, and departed to his house. But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified GOD, which had given such power unto men. (Mat 9:2-8)
Our GOD heals and forgives. He heals the body, and the soul. He forgives sin, because of our faith in Him. When Jesus walked on this earth, those that thought they had all the power, and made the 'rules', were incensed by such a usurpation of their power and authority. Nothing has changed, there are those today, who seek to keep others from the Kingdom, simply to maintain their power and authority over their 'subjects', both in the religious and political realms.
But, our GOD is King, and is in control. Just as He had power to heal this man's body, and forgive his sins, so He can do both for us. He is the Great Physician, He can and does heal all manner of illnesses and diseases, according to His will, and for His purpose. He also forgives sinners, who come to Him in faith, believing that He is, and He is a rewarder of them who diligently seek Him. He will reward and restore those who come to Him, trusting in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary for forgiveness and reconciliation, with a right relationship with Him.
Just as Jesus did, we are to minister to those around us who are hurting, as GOD gives the increase. We are to take His message of love, mercy, and grace to this lost and dying world that is broken by sin and under the judgment and condemnation of GOD that they might be healed of their real problem. As we go, we are to be discipled and to disciple one another in love, and in His Word that we might grow thereby. We are to love one another as Christ loved us, that all may know that we are His disciples. We are to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to all who will hear, that in hearing the Gospel and believing they might have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD with forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
