John Ch 5 V 1-15

1Some time later, Jesus went up to Jerusalem for a feast of the Jews. 2Now there is in Jerusalem near the Sheep Gate a pool, which in Aramaic is called Bethesda[a] and which is surrounded by five covered colonnades. 3Here a great number of disabled people used to lie—the blind, the lame, the paralyzed.[b] 5One who was there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. 6When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to get well?”

7“Sir,” the invalid replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.”

8Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” 9At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked.
The day on which this took place was a Sabbath, 10and so the Jews said to the man who had been healed, “It is the Sabbath; the law forbids you to carry your mat.”

11But he replied, “The man who made me well said to me, ‘Pick up your mat and walk.’ ”

12So they asked him, “Who is this fellow who told you to pick it up and walk?”

13The man who was healed had no idea who it was, for Jesus had slipped away into the crowd that was there.

14Later Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, “See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you.” 15The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him well.

.  God is able to bring anyone to Him, no matter how impossible it may seem. We may be deterred to reach out to some people who may seem as if all hope is lost, but as long as the person did not reject God after understanding who He is, anyone can be saved. Before we even accepted Jesus, God was already there, asking us if we want to know Him. Since the beginning, God is always watching over us, waiting for us to come back to Him. Once we have returned, as in accepting Jesus Christ, He will change us anew. We should go out and tell everyone about the joy of knowing God, the happiness that comes from knowing that Jesus, God, died for us on the cross so that whoever believes in Him shall have eternal life. He is our God, our creator, our master, and our best friend.
