When the ordinary was impossible, they did what could be perceived as the impossible, or least the extraordinary. And the man received a lot more than his friends expected. Not only was he healed from his paralysis, Jesus also unconditionally forgave his sins.

The common goal in the Body of Christ is the growth of the body. As each member does his or her individual part, it causes the growth of the Body as a whole. The Body is responsible for the building up of itself in love as it ministers to our neighbour and to each other member of the Body.

 If we are Christians, if we are committed to follow Jesus and love him, our question should be:  “How do I fit into God’s plans?” And “What are God’s plans for me?”

God wants us to receive every good thing he gives to us, with thanksgiving.
The way to recognize whether something is “good” or “bad” is to ask ourselves if we are comfortable to thank the Lord for it.
