What Jesus Saw


Our series this month is “Get Over Yourself”—stories of people who can’t get out of their own way until God intervenes.

This week, Dave Everson explains why he’s so jealous of four guys in a bible story who do a lot of damage and make everyone mad.

Four men dig a hole through a roof and lower their paralyzed friend through it to ask Jesus to heal him. If Jesus hadn’t commended their faith, would we consider them heroes? Didn’t they jump the line? Didn’t they wreck a house? Didn’t they put a lot of lives at risk? Doesn’t Jesus care about any of this? Why does Jesus see faith and not foolishness?
