If You Are In A WhatsApp Group With Friends Like These, The Sky Is Your Starting Point!

(S)cripture: Luke 5:18-20 (NLT) "Some men came carrying a paralyzed man on a sleeping mat. They tried to take him inside to Jesus, but they couldn't reach Him because of the crowd. So they went up to the roof and took off some tiles. Then they lowered the sick man on his mat down into the crowd, right in front of Jesus. Seeing their Faith, Jesus said to the man, Young man, your sins have been forgiven"

(O)bservation: The first thing i noticed here is that one man was sick, but surprisingly the story is filled with "They" instead of "him"..."They tried to take him inside to Jesus...", "They couldn't reach Him...", "They went up to the roof...", "They lowered the sick man..." and Jesus seeing "Their" faith (not the sick mans faith) gave the sick man his healing. 

All i can say is, we all need friends like these...we need a team around us that is willing to carry the vision even when we are not capable

What had these men heard about Jesus though? What had they heard that gave them so much conviction? because by their actions, they proved that they were fully convinced that if their friend could simply meet Jesus, he would be made well. They had probably seen or heard of someone else' testimony...they must have seen some form of evidence.

"Seeing their faith"- which means faith can be seen, faith is visible...if you say you have faith for a job, can God see it? You have faith to be healed...can God see it? You have put your faith in Jesus Christ? Can God See your faith??? why are you still dealing with guilt and shame if you already believe Jesus has paid for your sins? why are you still living in sin, practising sin if truly you have faith in what Jesus Christ has done for you? 
Faith isn't just a belief, it is proof of what you believe

"Seeing their faith" - Jesus healed this man based on his relationships. Who have you surrounded yourself with? 

(A)pplication: I am going to write down the names of my top 10 closest friends, and identify how many of them I would go the extra mile for?

How many of them would go the extra mile for me? 

What can I do for them today, that will push them closer to Jesus? closer to their dreams?

Send this link to your friends, and ask them what their dreams and aspirations are and start identifying how you can help them get there

(P)rayer: Father, every single day i get to see You at work in my life, i get to see you filling up this empty vessel, i know nothing...yet because i am in a relationship with EVERYTHING, you have chosen to use this foolish boy to confound the wisdom of this world...i just ask that you keep me hungry for You, keep me empty for You. Surround me with the right people, help me become a better friend...a friend that goes the extra mile to ensure goals are met, to ensure they all come to know You and enjoy this relationship that astounds me every single day in Jesus Name!!! 🙏

P.S How did all this come out from that simple verse? You can do it as well...practice the S.O.A.P strategy to studying the Bible and i can't wait to hear what God reveals through you...please share with us when He does 😀
