FAITH FULL FRIENDS
“Four men came to him carrying a paralyzed man. Since they could not bring him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof over the place where Jesus was. Then they lowered the cot on which the paralyzed man was lying. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the man, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.”
Because of the faith of his friends he was healed. How much faith did they have in Jesus healing power? Enough belief to go get their lame friend, enough to carry their friend what ever distance it was to the house were Jesus was living, enough to see the crowd as only one more barrier to overcome, enough to risk the wrath if the home owner (who may have been Jesus), and finally they had enough to dig a hole through the roof and lower their friend down to the healer. These were truly faithful men full of faith.
Do you have those type of friends? And more importantly, are you that type of friend?
