Read Mark 2:1-14.
Devotion by: Chris Stephen
There are many aspects to our lives that mean so much to us. But for me, I would say that healthy friendships are one of the most vital parts of a person’s life. In this passage, we see a bunch of friends bringing a paralyzed man to Jesus for healing. And Jesus healed him. Usually, I focus on the man’s healing, but today, I had to reread three simple words, “Seeing their faith.” Whose faith? The friends’ faith. It was the friends’ faith that initiated this visit to Jesus. Those three words bring so much power to this story because they remind us that friendship is powerful.
What friends are bringing you to Jesus?
