Matthew 9:2 meditation

“Just then some people brought a paraplegic man to him, lying on a sleeping mat. When Jesus perceived the strong faith within their hearts, he said to the paralyzed man, “My son, be encouraged, for your sins have been forgiven.”” Matthew 9:2 TPT

It is a great thing
To have faithful friends
A believing community
That stands with you in your need
To help you find solutions
Rather than condemn
Just as this man’s friends
Brought him in faith to Jesus

Jesus saw their hearts
And he was moved by their love
Their concern for their brother
Their faith in Jesus so strong
They knew he was the solution
To what beset their friend
So they carried their brother
To Jesus side

Sometimes it is our sin
That leaves us paralyzed
Depressed and hopeless
Sickness takes hold
And Jesus could see
What bound this man to his bed
And he knew that forgiveness
Was the crucial thing he needed

So Jesus spoke the words
Of great encouragement
Told the man he was forgiven
Of all the sins he done
For Jesus knew that guilt
Was a powerful bondage
That could keep this man from walking
From receiving his healing

To hear Jesus voice
Assuring us we are forgiven
Said with the authority
That God‘s son was given
There is nothing more powerful
Nothing more freeing
Then to be released
From the burden of our sin

That very same Jesus
Says to you and I today
All is forgiven
On the cross taken away
I paid all the cost
On that fateful day
So you could be freed
From sin and guilt’s sway

As I go about my day
When I come across
Someone bound by sin and guilt
For which You, Jesus, paid the cost
You empower me to say
As a son of God
Be encouraged you’re forgiven
Jesus has paid the cost

To be freed from guilt and sin
Is the core that needs healing
In every person’s life
In every human being
Without it we are bound
And certainly dying
Only Jesus forgiveness
Can give us life everlasting

From everything we’ve done Jesus
You cleanse and make us whole
For You know there is no separation
Of body, mind and soul
For we were made as one unit
To show Your glory in to world
A true reflection of You
A Kingdom of God child
