Being Christian does not mean defending yourself with an ideology in order to move forward. To be Christian is to be free, because we have confidence, because we are docile to the Word of the Lord.
Whoever has faith feels a great need for God and, in our own smallness, we surrender ourselves, trusting fully in Him.
Jesus looks at the paralytic and focuses on what is essential: "Your sins are forgiven". Physical health is a gift that we must preserve but the Lord teaches us that we must also preserve the health of the heart, spiritual health.
The Lord has so much compassion, He involves Himself in our problems. Let us often repeat this simple prayer: Lord, I am a sinner, have mercy on me, have compassion for me.
May the Holy Spirit revive in each of us the call to be courageous and joyful evangelizers.
Jesus had authority because there was consistency in what he taught and what he did, in how he lived. Authority is seen in this: consistency and witness.
