Our God will come to save us

Today’s Gospel proclamation presents us with the unfailing assurance of the freedom that God brings us through his son Jesus Christ. As we pre- pare our hearts for the second coming of Christ, we are reminded that he is coming to do the impossible with the authority from his Father. Only God can forgive our sins and at times, our physical and mental sicknesses are a result of the sinful nature of our hearts.

We need to have humility to allow those around us to accompany us on the spiritual journey. Jesus will trans- form us to receive the freedom that we need. There was no direct access to those who were carrying the person on the stretcher, it took a little creativity to reach the healer. We could be blocked from the sight of Jesus due to clutter and the crowdedness of the materialism we face day in and day out. Let us keep trying until we reach closer to the Lord Jesus so we can receive forgiveness and healing. Let us keep in mind, that Jesus is the only way to salvation.

Prayer: Abba Father, thank you for sending your only Son with the authority to forgive, so that we are cleansed from our sins. Amen.
