Day 19: The Answer



QUESTIONS demand answers

or they wouldn't be QUESTIONS.

You wonder & you ask

Do ____ _____ ______?

And you wait for the response.

It may be what you want to hear

or what you don't want to hear

or maybe nothing at all.

Even JESUS asked QUESTIONS,

approximately 307 of them.

But why would JESUS ask if HE was the answer?

HE saw the lame man lying there and QUESTIONED him~

"Do you want to get well?" (John 5:6)

I wonder if the man thought he was going crazy

for why would HE ask such a question

as wasn't it so obvious.

Hmm...

How many times have I acted lame,

paralyzed in a feeling or emotion,

paralyzed on a thought,

paralyzed in doubt

when

JESUS

is standing right before me and asks the same QUESTION~

"Do you want to get well?"

Do you BELIEVE ME?

Will you~

“Get up! Pick up your mat and walk(John 5:8)

Oh how DOUBT keeps you on the ground.

JESUS QUESTIONED him.

And then JESUS QUESTIONED another

who wasn't so passive

because she BELIEVED in the ONE who could heal her.

She saw HIM from a distance

until HE was so close to her

that she reached out & touch the fringe of HIS garment

and immediately she was healed.

And then came the QUESTION from JESUS~

"Who touched ME?” (Luke 8:45)

Hmm...

REAL LIFE. REAL STORIES. REAL GOD.

What QUESTION is JESUS asking you?

"Do you want to get well?"

or

"Who touched ME?"

If

"YOU'VE ALWAYS BEEN" the ANSWER

why QUESTION HIM?
