Healing is part of God’s love for us. It is part of His restorative plan for His people. Jesus is the Healer. The many accounts of healing are not just to tell us it happened but to help us experience Jesus as continuing healer. And so we can identify with the men who felt compelled to bring their paralysed friend before Jesus for they knew that in Jesus healing could be found. The paralysed man was healed that day because of the faith of his friends. They believed that Jesus could heal him and so they acted on that belief, persevering through the obstacles and placing their trust in Jesus.
