would you like to get well?

“When Jesus saw him and knew how long he had been ill, he asked him,

‘Would you like to get well?'”

A simple question.
Are you here to be healed?
Yes or no.

Instead, he makes an excuse.

“I can’t, sir, for i have no one to help me into the pool.”

Here stands the man with all power – the master healer not only of sickness but of souls – a man asking “Do you want to be healed?” – and all we can do is make excuses.

My prayer is that when confronted by Jesus,
when offered healing,
I would not make excuses,
but bow at his feet
declaring

“Lord! If you are willing…”
