Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 69

69. “Do you want to get well?” (John 5:6).

Is that a crazy question? Surely if one has been afflicted with disease for 38 years, he wants to get well, or does he? How many people continue in sin with no desire for change? No, we do not equate this man’s illness with sin, but sin is an “illness” in itself–one that many people prefer to hold onto, having become addicted to its “freedoms” and temporary feelings of pleasure. When Jesus approaches us in our sin, do we want to get well or do we prefer to continue in our current path at this time? To reject cleansing seems as ludicrous as this man rejecting healing, but it’s a choice people make every day.
