Mark: Day 3 - We All Need Friends
This 30 Days Series will lead us to Touch the Hem of Jesus' Robe by taking a look at the Gospel of Mark.
The Word - "And they came, bringing to him a paralytic carried by four men. And when they could not get near him because of the crowd, they removed the roof above him, and when they had made an opening, they let down the bed on which the paralytic lay. And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Mark 2:3-5 ESV
A Thought - We all need a group of friends that will be there when the only solution to our problem is to tear a roof open and drag us to Jesus. In the spirit, we have the the Paraclete (aka the Holy Spirit). But whom do we have in the flesh? Don't worry. They will show themselves in a crisis. They will put you on a mat and carry you to Jesus.
How can I be so sure? I've been carried a time or two.
A Prayer - Lord, show me the people in my life that I can trust to always bring me closer to you. Show me the people that I need to carry to You and give me the strength to carry them. Thank you for carrying me when you were on the cross. - In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
