This passage reveals a radical persistent faith. This faith wasn’t discouraged by obstacles. These people were determined even though it meant stepping out of their comfort zone. Our culture says faith is supposed to be a quiet, private thing. The Bible’s view is different. It shows faith to be a radical thing. It does what it has to do to touch the throne of God and see God move. What Jesus did out of his love for us, to save us, was radical. The only appropriate response is a radical response.

Focus Scripture:

  • Mark 2:1-11

    Mark 2:1-5 A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home. So many gathered that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them. Some men came, bringing to him a paralytic, 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 and, after digging through it, lowered the mat the paralyzed man was lying on. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven."

    2: 11 I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.

"I've been a WH podrishioner for several years now and I can't tell you how much it has changed my life. I came across these podcasts at a time when I was in an extremely unhealthy/abusive situation, and these teachings were immensely influential to me maintaining my faith and sanity. THANK YOU for showing me what a Jesus-looking God is like and what it means to follow Him. Many, many blessings to all of you!"
