September 5 "Count The Cost To Be Healed" John 5

"Do you want to be made well?" John 5:6 An odd question asked of a man who has been sick for 38 years. "Arise, take up your mat and walk." The sick, the blind, the lame were there. Waiting for an angel to stir up the water. It was the Festival, a holy time. Jesus asks the odd question so the man can count the cost: he will be out of a job as a beggar; he will publicly be scourged for a miracle on the Sabbath; and he will have to answer to his friends. He who is healed by the Word will also live and die by the Word. May the Word rule over our hearts this day. Let the peace of Christ rule your hearts.
