Series: Who's Your One?

Passage: Mark 2:1-13
We must believe that God wants us to help people get to Jesus.
We must believe that people need Jesus.
We must see ways to help people get to Jesus.
We must help people get to Jesus.
3 And they came, bringing to Him a paralytic, carried by four men. 4 Being unable to get to Him because of the crowd, they removed the roof above Him; and when they had dug an opening, they let down the pallet on which the paralytic was lying. 5 “And Jesus seeing their faith said to the paralytic, ‘Son your sins are forgiven.’”
It was team work
It was hard word.
It was dirty work and dangerous work.
It was determined work.
It was divine work.
What happens when we bring people to Jesus?
Religious people will question and criticize.
6 But some of the scribes were sitting there and reasoning in their hearts, 7 “Why does this man speak that way? He is blaspheming; who can forgive sins but God alone?
Lost people will be saved, rejoicing takes place, and God is glorified.
10 “But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—He said to the paralytic, 11“I say to you, get up, pick up your pallet and go home.” 12 And he got up and immediately picked up the pallet and went out in the sight of everyone, so that they were all amazed and were glorifying God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this.”
