Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Arise, take up your bed and walk’? Mark 2:9

What one person believes to be the easiest is not always true, because unlike God, man is limited. Therefore, we must understand that we have impossibilities, but the Lord is Omnipotent. Therefore, we need to judge the blessing received according to the abilities of the heavenly Father, rather than seeing them according to our ability or lack thereof. He can surely do all things, because he is God. To Him be all glory!

When the Lord says: Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God (Isaiah 41:10), He is declaring that nothing can destroy us, limit us or prevent us from fulfilling our mission. Believe in the words of the Most High and set yourself on the way to carry them out. Even if they seem impossible to you, they are possible to Him. 

It is wonderful to know that we can face the daily struggles with the assurance of our triumph. When it comes to divine work, remain steadfast in your faith and set out to accomplish it. When giving you a commandment, God puts His virtue in it, thus, you will succeed. When a person gets right with the Lord, the work is accomplished. He never ever failed anyone.

Within human understanding, one cannot imagine young David challenging and defeated the giant Goliath (1 Samuel 17). Such success happens to those who have been called by the Lord and believed Him. On that day, the Philistines couldn’t believe what they saw: their hero lying on the ground, dead and headless. It happened just as David had declared. Because he was filled with the Spirit, he prophesied that shame would be lifted from the people of Israel.

The scribes pondered about Jesus’ statement to the paralytic: Your sins are forgiven. They came close to giving glory to God. When questioning Jesus’ authority to forgive sins, something that only the Father can do, they could have understood that the Master Himself was the Dayspring from on High(Luke 1:78), who came to solve all problems.

The prejudice of those men prevented them from seeing that the Son of God had spoken a truth that no one else could say. They did not answer the Master’s question: Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Arise, take up your bed and walk’? So Jesus repeated that statement to the paralytic, who obeyed and was healed!

When the Word is revealed to you, you are in the same position as the paralytic: forgiven of all your sins. Thus, you can get up, take up your bed and walk. You must understand that the greatest miracle is the forgiveness of sins, and not make a man with impaired movement to stand up. Christ loves you!

In Christ, with love,

Lord! It is best to listen to Your Word and learn how to behave to live the miracle. Your works take place in the life of anyone who dares to believe what You say, do what You command and abandon sin.

We cannot be like the scribes who, although they saw Your work, they reasoned, instead of surrendering or asking for forgiveness. They were interested in keeping the position of teachers when actually they were not even apprentices, thus, they let Your salvation escape.

Man needs mercy, because most of the time he is distant from the position that You have given him to save himself. In order not to lose the day of our visitation, we need Your help at all times. Amen!
