The Healing at the Pool on the Sabbath


 1. Afraid of Change...

John 5:1-6 - After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, in Aramaic called Bethesda, which has five roofed colonnades.  In these lay a multitude of invalids—blind, lame, and paralyzed. One man was there who had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had already been there a long time, he said to him, “Do you want to be healed?” 


2. I Think I Can't...

John 5:7 - The sick man answered him, “Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, and while I am going another steps down before me.” 


3. Time for Change...

John 5:8 - Jesus said to him, “Get up, take up your bed, and walk.”
