DID YOU SEE THAT

Mark 2

1And again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised that he was in the house.

2And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them.

3And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four.

4And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.

5When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.

6But there was certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,

7Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?

8And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, Why reason ye these things in your hearts?

9Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk?

10But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)

11I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house.

12And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.

13And he went forth again by the sea side; and all the multitude resorted unto him, and he taught them.

1. Christ came to Capernaum for a second time.

He was in a house with some friends

He had been gone for some days

When word got out he was there many came to hear him

There were so many it filled the house

As Christ was preaching the word of God

Some men came with a man who was lame

They could not enter there was no room

2. Finding a way

The only way was from the top of the house

They opened the roof

The let the sick down through the hole

Faith goes a long way if we just trust Jesus

It took a lot of strong faith to go on the roof

There is a way for all to be saved if they will look to Christ

Would have been easier to give up and go home

Love for their brother and faith in the Lord kept them going

3. The master saw their faith

He spoke son thy sins be forgiven

He had not seen suck faith

He knew there were none believers among them

He seen their hearts as they were thinking who is he

No man can forgive sins

Anyway they could cause doubt they wanted too.

Jesus knew what they were thinkin7Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?

No man has this power

Who does he think he is God

Christ knew what they had on their mind

4.Jesus which is easer

9Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk?

10But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (he saith to the sick of the palsy,)

Thy sins forgiven

Arise take up your bed and walk
