April 3 – Jesus Changes Things

Read: John 5:1-17

When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had already been there a long time, he said to him, “Do you want to be healed?” (John 5:6 ESV)

Can you imagine laying in the same spot everyday and just hoping that someone would help you? It sounds horrible. Yet that was the daily reality of the lame man at the pool. Unfortunately it is also the daily reality for many people today.

Jesus came along and changed everything for the lame man. He did the same for so many others throughout the gospels. And he initiated the change with the question, “Do you want to be healed?”

I firmly believe that many people who face dire situations today, no matter long they have been trapped in that circumstance, can experience a change in their life. Jesus changes things. Not only is he the diving point of human history, but he can also be the diving point of your own personal story.
