Four friends destroy a roof to lower a paralyzed man down to Jesus, knowing that Jesus has life-giving words for him. Seeing their faith, Jesus heals the paralyzed man. What a miracle: Faith on behalf of others is strong enough to heal. The church must remember this gospel message, because this world and our neighbors need us to have faith for them. When have you relied on the faith of others to bring you to healing? Who are those who need the church's faith and strength now? Take heart, church: with faith in Jesus, we can do hard things.
