JESUS AND THE HOLE IN THE ROOF
Jesus on Snapchat
Pastor Holly Russo

1. Does your life allow for interruptions?

…He was preaching the word to them. (Mark 2:2)

..and when they had made an opening, they let down the bed on which the paralytic lay. (Mark 2:4)

2. Does your faith Dig?

Some men came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them. Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. (Mark 2:3-4)

Now some of the scribes were sitting there, questioning in their hearts, “Why does this man speak like that? He is blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?” (Mark 2:6-7)

But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”- he said to the paralytic - “I say to you, rise, pick up your bed, and go home.” (Mark 2:10-11)

3. Do your eyes see people’s greatest needs?

And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to heal them. (Luke 5:17)

“I say to you, rise, pick up your bed, and go home.” And he rose and immediately picked up his bed and went out before them all, so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, “We never saw anything like this!” (Mark 2:11-12)

And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” (Mark 2:5)

4. Does your compassion move you into action

And they came, bringing to him a paralytic carried by four men. (Mark 2:1)

And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” (Mark 2:5)
