Do You Want to Be Made Well?
When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?” John 5:6
“Do you want to be made well?” That sounds like a silly question. It really does sound insane to ask a man who is sick if he wants to be made whole. But Jesus respected this man's will just as He respects your will and every human will.
If God were to transgress your will, if He were to force you to do something you did not want to do, you would no longer be a free human being with your own will. You would become a machine. So God gave you a will; and because you have a will, you must decide if you want to be made whole by accepting Him as your Savior. The offer made available to you today is whosoever will may come (Revelation 22:17). “Do you want to be made well?”
What kind of faith does it take to have our lives transformed? Faith that can see the invisible, that can believe the incredible, that can receive the impossible.
Doubt dreads to take a step, faith soars on high.
Doubt questions “Who believes?” Faith answers, “I!”
