My dear Brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today is from the book of Luke 5:24- 25, “But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.” So he said to the paralyzed man, “I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.”Immediately he stood up in front of them, took what he had been lying on and went home praising God.”
Two thousand years ago, When Jesus Christ lived on the face of this earth, people thronged around him and He preached the Gospel to them. He not only performed miracles before them but also did many good things for them. He healed the sick and drove the evil spirit from them. He relieved them from their pain and agony. One day He was preaching at a cottage meeting in the place at Capernaum. Where ever He went huge crowd gathered around him. The People brought those who were sick, weak and evil possessed. The power of healing came into the people during the time of his sermon. While He was preaching, the word of the Lord went out like medicine and they were being healed. The Bible says, “He sent His word and healed them. And delivered them from their destruction.
The scribes and Pharisees took Jesus for a mere man, for though He was really a man, and the son of man, yet He was God as well as man. He was manifest in the flesh. He had power to forgive sins. The triune God wanted to display His power to the scribes and Pharisees , so He looked at the Paralytic man, and thus addressed him, “I say unto you arise and take up your couch and go to your house.” So the man who was paralyzed took up his bed and went to his house glorifying God.
My dear brothers and sisters, Are you going through a miserable state of life? Do you need deliverance from your sins and affliction? Then turn to God. The scribes and Pharisees were just on lookers. They couldn’t forgive others sins, or heal anyone. Only the Lord Jesus Christ has the authority to forgive you of your sins, and heal all your disease. The Lord crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies. He satisfies your mouth with good things. The Lord is merciful and gracious. The Lord will not cast you off forever. He will show compassion according to the multitude of His mercies. He does not afflict anyone willingly nor grieve the children of men. The Lord is good to those who wait for Him. To the soul who seek Him.
Therefore my dear Brothers and Sisters place your hope in the Lord Jesus Christ and fix your eyes on Jesus. For He alone is the author and finisher of your faith. The Lord hears those who cry out, and delivers them from their distress. He sees all your tears. He hears every sigh of yours. God will remove your lack and bless you with the desires of your heart.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord we thank you for forgiving our sins. And healing all our diseases. Help us Lord to turn to You and seek Your face in times of distress. We pray that You will neither forsake us nor leave us. In Jesus name we pray.
