John 5:6 “When Jesus saw him and knew he had been ill for a long time, He asked him, ‘Would you like to get well?’”
Jesus knew the man had been sick for a long time, and still He asked the man if he wanted to get well. It’s not that He’s trying to be facetious, or trying to make Himself feel important, He was getting the man to see that he needed a Savior, to do what he could not on his own, so when his miracle came, he would know it’s Source. When you acknowledge your weaknesses and failures before Him, acknowledging that you need His power and grace to get you through, He begins to do a work to bring out the dross in you, so that the silver in you becomes evident, and you can reflect Jesus in your life.He wants to save you, whatever your situation. Ask Him.
“Abba, I need You. Help me in this situation, in this trial, in this challenge. Let Your shine in my life. In Jesus Name, amen.”
