WHO NEEDS OUR HELP?

May 21

In John 5:1–24, we see Jesus seek out a man who has been sick for 38 years.  The man does nothing to deserve this healing, and even comes up with all kind of excuses for why he can’t be healed. But this is THE Jesus who loves us and does things for us even when we don’t deserve it or even believe Him. Also we see that Jesus tells the Pharisees He is God, most people would say that Jesus never said that in the Bible and they would be wrong because they wanted to kill him for it.  This scripture also shows us that Jesus has compassion on us even when we don’t deserve it and it also shows the inhumanity of man in that the Pharisees don’t care that the man is healed, all they care about is that he and Jesus broke THEIR LAWS.  Because God is not like they are, He is in the healing business all the time.  Imagine if hospitals, fire departments, and others who take care of people were closed on Sunday, God is open for business all the time, because He loves us unconditionally. What area of life do you need God to work on? This also means when we minister to people we should not only minister to their physical needs, but also make sure we don’t forget the greatest need of all the spiritual need for Christ and where they will spend eternity.

John 5:5-9 Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity thirty-eight years. 6 When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?” 7 The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me.” 8 Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.” 9 And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked. And that day was the Sabbath.

This term living water in John 4:14, always meant spring water, in opposition to the dead, stagnant water contained in pools, ponds, tanks and cisterns; and what our Lord means by it is evidently the Holy Spirit, as may be seen in John 7:38-39. As water quenches...
