Sometimes people look at you like they can.
I’m glad I can’t – expressions and body language can be enough. I’m not necessarily encouraged God knows all my thoughts but I am glad He knows and still loves and forgives!
At this, some of the teachers of the law said to themselves, “This fellow is blaspheming!”
Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said, “Why do you entertain evil thoughts in your hearts? Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins…” Then he said to the paralytic, “Get up, take your mat and go home.” And the man got up and went home. When the crowd saw this, they were filled with awe; and they praised God, who had given such authority to men. Matthew 9:3-7
Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’?
Help us Lord to understand the authority You have given.
