Pastor Aries’ Sermon 27, May, 2017 Does it Feel Good or Does it Do You Good?

John 5:1-8
There are people who come to church blind, lame, paralyzed.
Blind = no vision in life.
Paralyzed = burdened in life.

38 years of infirmity.
38 years in church with the same condition.
Lord Jesus is asking every one of us, “Do we want to get well?”

Sometimes we are invalid, though we are in church.
We may have heard the same slogan.
However, being invalid has nothing to do with remaining invalid.

Are we in the same in the same condition in the last 28 years?
Jesus knows that this man needs transformation, not sympathy.

Angel coming down. Just like revival meeting.

The lame person was in the same location for 38 years.
He could have just crawled nearer and nearer.

Could he be too comfortable in waiting?
Getting too comfortable waiting means accepting your condition without even trying.
Waiting passively is different from waiting actively.

Change is very uncomfortable and inconvenient.

Lord Jesus asked us, “Do you want to have your breakthrough?”
The sick man did not say yes or no.
His mindset of comfort makes him blame others.
We must not depend on others for your breakthrough.
We must depend only on Lord Jesus.
The sick man depended on lucky chance.

Lord Jesus healed him.
The source of healing is not the pool or even 4D pool.
The source of healing is Lord Jesus.

Sometimes, it feels good when your weakness is given reason for existence.
However, we must take responsibility. Don’t just feel good. We must act.

Hag 2:1-9
God encourages us to be strong. Then, we feel God.
At the same time, we must work with Lord Jesus.
