Is it easier to say, Your sins are forgiven you, or to say, Get up and walk? I will prove to you, then, that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.
Questions for Life Groups
- Read the story of Jesus forgiving sin and healing a crippled man in Luke 5:17-26. Reflect on where you fit in this story. In what ways are healing and forgiveness related for you?
- Read this week’s articles titled Enigma. Do you believe there is a strong connection between your beliefs and your actions? Do you believe God punishes you for doing wrong? Either way, what is your evidence? Which is more difficult, forgiveness or healing? How are they related?
- How can the members of your group help you this week and on-going to help you to be more receptive to hearing and understanding the Word of God? Pray for each other to have the Holy Spirit bless you with more courage.
