Discover:

  • Jesus was criticized for who he socialized with. Who were these undesirables with whom the Lord ate and drank?
  • What did Jesus demonstrate to his skeptics in verses 24-25?

Respond:

  • Do you “eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners”? Pray today about how we can be salt and light and be in the world but not of the world.
  • In John 9 Jesus heals a blind man and tells his disciples that the man was born blind so that “the acts of God may be revealed”. In today’s passage we see a similar healing of a paralytic. How do you understand and respond to suffering in your life?
