When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole? ( John 5:6 KJV)
Just Tell Jesus YES!
Over the years of our existence, dozens of children and youth have grown to love being around our Dare 2 Be Different Team members, training sessions and activities. Many parents release their youth into our hands because they are sure they are well cared for, encouraged, guided aright and constantly motivated.
Quite recently, a little chap who was around one of our activities came up to me and whispered, "Do you have anything to eat because I didn't eat anything before I came here." I quickly rose from my computer, washed my hands and started preparing a burger for him. I asked, would you like lettuce and all the works on your burger, his response was - YES PLEASE.
I was not only amazed by his manners, but his response got me thinking.
Jesus cares very much about our well being. That's why he came to earth. He really wants to bless, heal, forgive and restore broken situations. When we review many of the accounts of his work on earth when he came down, we see that was his mission.
The Bible says in Mark 2:17 KJV . . . They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Jesus saw the impotent man in John 5:6 in his situation and immediately knew that he was like that for a long time. He asks him a simple question. Wilt thou be made whole?
Even though the man explained his situation in much words to the master, I believe he simply wanted to say YES PLEASE.
Jesus stands at your door now and knocks. He says to you, calling you by name,
Do you need healing? Do you need salvation? Do you need restoration? Do you need a blessing? Do you need a financial breakthrough?
Friend - all you have to say to him in response and in FAITH with much HOPE is YES PLEASE and you will have it.
Keep you Faith and Hope HIGH. Your answer is coming!
