Gospel MT 9:1-8

After entering a boat, Jesus made the crossing, and came into his own town.
And there people brought to him a paralytic lying on a stretcher.
When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic,
“Courage, child, your sins are forgiven.”
At that, some of the scribes said to themselves,
“This man is blaspheming.”
Jesus knew what they were thinking, and said,
“Why do you harbor evil thoughts?
Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’
or to say, ‘Rise and walk’?
But that you may know that the Son of Man
has authority on earth to forgive sins”–
he then said to the paralytic,
“Rise, pick up your stretcher, and go home.”
He rose and went home.
When the crowds saw this they were struck with awe
and glorified God who had given such authority to men.

  1. You have no idea of how God uses you to bless my life each day. Each day you are like a MAGNIFIER TO THE WORD as you focus my thinking on a passage of scripture. Thank you for being there faithfully day after day after day. I give thanks to The Father and pray that He will bless you abundantly. Expect a special blessing

  2. I pray every day to Jesus to heal me and help me to become a loving and caring person. My heart hurts when their is so much unrest in our world. Heal each person Lord so that are world will be Love, Peace and Hope for all.
