Do You Really Want It?

Jul 18, 2021    Phil Rikard    When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, "Do you want to get well?" John 5:6 (NIV)

Jesus heals the lamb man at the pool of Bethesda. He asks him, "Do you want to get well?" It's easy, after years of challenge and difficulty, to become comfortable in your condition, no matter how bad it is. The thought of change, of stepping into something new, can hold you back. Where have you become comfortable in your own condition? Do you really want to get well?
