Isaiah 35:1-10; Psalm 85:9-14; Luke 5:17-26

Am I spiritually paralysed?

Jesus grasped the situation in an instant. The man’s main ailment was not his physical condition. It was the state of his soul. His crippled body was bad enough. His mind and heart crippled by sin was far worse. I ask myself, “Do I appreciate the evil of sin?” Todays’s Gospel story teaches me that sin paralyses us spiritually. I can’t be truly free until Jesus heals me from the evil within. Lord, be merciful to me a sinner.
