Today's Verse : Luke 5:18


May 18, 2012

Some men came carrying a paralytic on a mat and tried to take
him into the house to lay him before Jesus.
-- Luke 5:18

What is the fullest definition of a friend? The Bible offers us
numerous definitions and examples. One of my favorite examples is
this story of the paralyzed man whose friends went to great
extremes to get him to Jesus. Their faith and their effort to get
him to Jesus are the things that ultimately result in the man's
forgiveness and healing. I don't know about you, but that's the
kind of friend I want to be!

Holy Father, please bless me as I try to lead ___ (put the name
of several non-Christian friends here) to forgiveness and healing
in Jesus. Give me the tenacity and tact to do this with gentleness
and respect without losing my sense of urgency to see them become
Christians. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
