Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ According to St. John 5:1-16.

There was a feast of Jews and Jesus went to Jerusalem.Now there is in Jerusalem at the sheep gate, a pool called in Hebrew Bethesda, with five porticoes.In these lay a large number of ill, blind, lame and crippled.One man was there who had been ill for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had been ill for a long time, he said to him,”Do you want to be well?” The sick man answered him,”Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; while I am on my way, someone else gets down there before me.” Jesus said to him,”Rise, take up your mat, and walk.” Immediately the man became well, took up his mat, and walked. Now that day was a Sabbath. So the Jews said to the man who was cured,”It is Sabbath, and it is not lawful for you to carry your mat.” He answered them,” The man who made me well told me,’Take up your mat and walk.'”They asked him,”Who is the man who told you,’Take it up and walk’?”The man who was healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had slipped away since there was a crowd there. After this Jesus found him in the temple area and said to him,”Look, you are well; do not sin no more, so that nothing worse may happen to you.”The man went and told the Jews that Jesus was the one who had made him well.Therefore, the Jews began to persecute Jesus because he did this on a Sabbath. We all have crippled elements in our lives and we are also expecting to heal. But it is interesting what was Jesus’s question to this man was. “Do you want to get healed?” Jesus knew very well that this man was here in this place for thirty-eight years and wanted to get heald very badly. But Juses wanted to hear it from this mans mouth. Like that we may be at places for a long time, may be affected by a sickness, some kind of addiction, financial situation to get resolved or expecting a Baby, Job or whatever that may be. We might feel that it is taking time forever. But Jesus is asking us today, “Do you want to be free from whatever that you are entangled in?” Have we told Jesus our issue? Yes, he knows everything that we want and aspires in this life, because he orchestrates every step of our lives. But it’s time to tell him that you want freedom and believe, and you will be delivered. Remember what Jesus tell him when he meet’s him for the second time, do not sin anymore. So my friends’ let’s repent of our sins and start following Jesus who loves us so much that he gave his life for us, so what else will he not give us. He is the life that we are expecting and he is the truth that we are seeking.
