Take heart and keep faith

And behold, some people brought to him a paralytic, lying on a bed. And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Take heart, my son; your sins are forgiven.” Matt. 9:2

Believing Jesus could change their friend’s current situation the paralytic’s friends took action, picking him up and carrying him to Jesus because he couldn’t walk himself. Jesus healed and forgave this man as a result of collective faith and collective action.

Lord, whether I’m the one being carried or part of a group carrying someone else to Jesus for help, may we all take heart and keep faith.
