The story of the man healed from paralysis is fascinating. We sometimes mistake it for a simple story of healing, which isn’t ever simple. But this miracle takes a turn and God brings forgiveness along with healing. This is called Shalom in the Bible, God’s salvation (Shalom) is more than peace, it is a wholeness of forgiveness, healing and making things right in the world. Jesus uses this moment in this young man’s life to point others to God. The friends who brought the young man to Jesus were rewarded for their faith. Those who opposed Jesus were dumb founded by his authority from God the Father. All in all this is a wonderful teaching on working with God, instead of for God. Do you understand the difference?

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 on wisdom as a spiritual discipline. People with faith in God are called to continue learning and sharpening their minds, so that they might honor God with all they have. Some people label Christians as following God with blind faith. They say, “How do you know if the Bible is true?” “Why would you put your faith into some God you can’t see?” Billy Graham said, “You can’t see gravity, or the wind, you can see the effects of each, but even though not seeing, everyone believes they are true.” People with faith in God believe that God exists and He wants us to truly know Him through His Son, Jesus Christ. You can know God personally, and even though it takes faith, we believe and continue to learn with wisdom how to trust in God.
Where do you spend time writing out your faith? What do you focus on when you write? Some like to write like a diary, some like a journal, some write scriptures and some write out the character of God. However you write, it is right for you. You grow in faith by writing down how God is growing you in faith. When we write out prayers to God, or scriptures from God, we grow in our walk with God. Writing is an excellent process when processing your faith. Don’t neglect writing.
We can talk about prayer, talk about why we pray, when to pray, what to say in prayer, who to pray for and even how to pray, but learning how to pray takes practice. We need to learn to pray, not so that we become good at prayer, rather so that we grow in godliness. Join us for a sermon on how to pray scripture meditation prayers.
