Search and Rescue
Show mercy to those whose faith is wavering. Rescue others by snatching them from the fire.
When Jesus returned to Capernaum several days later, the news spread quickly that he was back home. Soon the house where he was staying was so packed with visitors that there was no more room, even outside the door. While he was preaching God’s word to them, four men arrived carrying a paralyzed man on a mat. They couldn’t bring him to Jesus because of the crowd, so they dug a hole through the roof above his head. Then they lowered the man on his mat, right down in front of Jesus. Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralyzed man, “My child, your sins are forgiven.”
Small Group Time
During our small group time today we talked about loving people and sharing Jesus with them. Sometimes that means talking with them about who Jesus is and how much He loves us. Sometimes that means being kind and helping others. We can share Jesus with both words and actions.
