Luke 5: 20 “ And when he saw their faith, he said, “Man your sins are forgiven you.”
One day a man with paralysis was brought to Jesus for the physical healing. The sick man’s friends had great faith on Jesus. Since there was large crowed , they had gone to the extent of opening the roof of the house and lowered along with cot in front of Jesus while he was preaching inside the house. Jesus saw the faith of that man’s friends who brought him to Jesus. Then suddenly, He pronounced these words, “ Man your sins are forgiven you.” I think they did not bring him for forgiveness of his sins but rather a physical healing. but Jesus knows the real need of the paralytic. First of all he met that and later he healed him of the paralysis.
We may have many needs and desires in this life. But when we come to Jesus, He will fulfill our emergency need. Sin is the root cause of all the problems we face on earth. It will also lead to eternal death. The forgiveness of our sins is the emergency need. He, in his authority and power, forgives us of our sins which we have done. He will heal the disease that spoils our spirit. Secondly,not only He cares for the spiritual needs but also he meets all our physical needs. Spiritual blessing are followed by physical blessings. Don’t worry if you don’t know what to ask Jesus. Come to him with faith He will give you the best.
