Take charge of your life

John 5:1-9
Some time later, Jesus went up to Jerusalem for one of the Jewish festivals. Now there is in Jerusalem near the Sheep Gate a pool, which in Aramaic is called Bethesda and which is surrounded by five covered colonnades. Here a great number of disabled people used to lie—the blind, the lame, the paralyzed. One who was there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to get well?”

“Sir,” the invalid replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.”

Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked.


Problems paralyze people
They get used to the abuse
They give up hope
Pain becomes predictable. It becomes better than freedom

Rise up from your paralysis
You can get up from your paralysis

Take up your bed
– you can be comfortable with your problem
– you don’t need that bed anymore

Take responsibility

Take charge of your life


Keep on walking
Get out of your situation
