Matthew 9:2: "Some men brought to him a paralyzed man, lying on a mat. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the man, ‘Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven.’"
Life Application Study Bible NIV Notes on Matthew 9:2:
"Among the first words Jesus said to the paralyzed man were "Your sins are forgiven."
Then he healed the man.
We must be careful not to concentrate on God’s power to heal physical sickness
more than on his power to forgive spiritual sickness in the form of sin.
Jesus saw that even more than physical health, this man needed spiritual health.
Spiritual health comes only from Jesus’ healing touch."
What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the Blood of Jesus!
What can make me whole again? Nothing but the blood of Jesus!
Oh precious is the flow that makes me white as snow!
No other fount I know, nothing but the blood of Jesus!
I am so grateful today for our Lord and Savior... Jesus..
who was willing to take God’s punishment that was meant for me..
He spared me.. not because I deserved it.. but because He loves me.. and He healed my life!
