Genesis 22:1–19; Psalm 115; Matthew 9:1–8

Bringing people to wellbeing

The man who is paralyzed is carried by people to Jesus who sees their faith. Without these caring people whose faith is expressed in action, this man could not approach Jesus. Faith communities are called to bring others to wellness. The man’s healing is holistic. Jesus heals both body and spirit. The person arises to new life – the word used for ‘rise up’ (8:7) is the same word used of Jesus’ resurrection (28:6). How do I bring people to Jesus? In what ways am I called to live holistically? How do I enable people to share in Jesus’ resurrection?
