(06/01/15) Imagine offering a 4 year old child their choice between a certificate for 1000 shares of Wal-Mart stock, or an ice cream cone! Today we look at a new angle of a story we've heard many times where Jesus healed someone, AFTER proclaiming their sins were forgiven. I never really considered before that Jesus actually gave the fullness of all gifts, eternal to the paralytic, but then in order to quiet the skeptics and naysayers gave him wellness for the remaining years of his earthly life.
In so many ways, nothing has changed. We are offered the greatest Gift imaginable, but sadly even many who have received it still grope desperately and greedily for "what else" we can get while in this life. Join us for a different look at Luke chapter 5 as we celebrate the Greatest Gift ever given!
We Love You in Christ,
