This Sunday we’ll explore a terrific story that most of you heard as a child. It is the story of the paralyzed man whose friends bring him to Jesus in Luke 5, beginning at verse 17. One of the truths we will explore is that before Jesus heals the man, he forgives him of his sins. We’ll discover that the greatest need we have is the need for our spirit and God’s spirit to be aligned. Most of those things that we think would make us happy and fulfilled, even being healed physically, are not as important as being in a right relationship with God that not only brings joy and fulfillment now, but brings eternal life with Jesus in a brand new body.
