“After this Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, ‘Look, you have become well. Don’t sin any more, lest anything worse happen to you.’”
One thing that Jesus loved to do was to heal people. He did it everywhere he went, even in Jerusalem. On this occasion He healed a man who had been disabled for 38 years. He wanted to be well but didn’t have anyone to help him. And then along came Jesus and turned his world upside down.
After healing the man Jesus made sure to tell him to sin no more. Jesus requires the same thing of us once He heals us. He wants us to change our lives and wants us to sin no more. That means we can’t live our lives for ourselves anymore. We must change our selfish ways into unselfish ways. Live your life today for the Kingdom of God and do a good deed for someone else without expecting anything in return.
