Weekly Devotions

Tim Hansel shares about a time he was in the country, climbing with his son, Zac. “We were climbing around in some cliffs, I heard a voice from above me yell, ‘Hey Dad! Catch me!’ I turned around to see Zac joyfully jumping off a rock straight at me. He had jumped and them yelled ‘Hey Dad!’ I became an instant circus act, catching him. We both fell to the ground. For a moment after I caught him I could hardly talk. When I found my voice again I gasped in exasperation: ‘Zac! Can you give me one good reason why you did that?’ He responded with remarkable calmness: ‘Sure…because you’re my Dad.’ His whole assurance was based in the fact that his father was trustworthy. He could live life to the hilt because I could be trusted. Isn’t this even more true for a Christian? “

In the second chapter of Mark, Jesus demonstrates a foundational truth to His disciples and all Christians as well.  In the midst of doubters and accusers, Jesus proved that He is the incarnate Son of God who can be trusted for our welfare and soul care. As the paralytic is brought to Jesus, the Gospel message is presented in living color before their eyes. His proclamation resounds as he shows them that He can be trusted.
