Scripture(s): John 5:1-15 (ESV)
In looking at the life of Jesus, there are several points where we begin to see him point to the reason that he came. Over the next several weeks, we will see that Jesus used miraculous signs and healing by meeting many immediate needs and ending so many problems and pain. The more we look at these miracles and how they meet immediate needs, the more they point to things much bigger, stronger and greater.
In this last week of the message series, Eyes Wide Shut, we will look at a Jesus’ meeting with a paralyzed man at a pool. Although through his statements and actions he seems to be tired of living this way, he seems to have a deeper issue. In the spirit of this story we will look at regardless of what happened in a person’s life that left them paralyzed and broken, Jesus asks one question: “Do You Want Better?” The answer seems easy but is it?
