The healing of the blind man is more than a miracle healing, it is an example of the God of all Creation working to create the Kingdom of God through Jesus Christ the Messiah. Jesus is the light of the world, and by healing the man born blind, he is bringing God’s light of healing and restoration into our world. Those that opposed this man’s healing testimony, his neighbors, the religious leaders, and even his parents, were caught in a vortex of blame and accusations against the healing, rather than seeing God through who Jesus is. Don’t become blind in this process of blame, rather become seeing through the miracle of Jesus redemption in the world.

Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches Acts 3. The healing of the lame beggar man takes precedent in the narrative, but what happens around the event is astounding. The healing took place “outside” the temple gate. The impact of this means that God’s Kingdom work is beginning to move outside the temple walls. God’s Kingdom is on the move, like lava moving down a mountain; no one can contain it’s flow. We learn through Acts 3 that God’s Spirit is on the move and He brings healing, wholeness and joy as a result. Acts 3:19 says when we repent of our sin, times of refreshing will come from God. I hope you find your times of refreshing when you walk away from your sin-filled life.
The question goes; “If God wants me to be happy, and I’m not happy, then did God fail me?” What happens when we don’t get our prayers answered the way we want them? What happens when I don’t get the material possessions I wanted, but I have the faith to believe I should get them? What kind of depth of faith do we have if we haven’t yet learned to suffer through the hard times? God has something more for each one of us, and maybe that means not getting the happiness we seek. Join us for this sermon on debunking the myth of the prosperity gospel.
Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on the gospel of John 5:1-9. Jesus meets a man who has been disabled by the pool of Bethesda for 38 years. Jesus asks the man, “Do you want to be well?” Jesus asks you the same question today, “Do you want to be well?” Would you rather hang onto your addictions, your hang ups, your bitterness in life, or would you like healing? You get to choose.
