Five Minute Friday: Jesus Likes to Ask Questions

Today I am participating in Five Minute Friday, where a group of writers get together and write about a one word prompt for 5 minutes.  Today's word is  "question."

Begin 5 minutes.

Jesus likes to ask questions.  

A few times when he has spoken to me, it has been in the form of a question.  Why do you think He does that? Maybe because He wants us to come to realization of the answer for ourselves?

One day He asked the group of Pharisees a question, “Which is easier to say, your sins are forgiven, or rise up and walk?” (Luke 5)

That question was a huge question for us today.  It connects two things, forgiveness and healing.

Throughout the scripture, we see these things side by side.  In Isaiah 53, 1 Peter 2, Psalm 103, it is a repeated theme.

When the fall happened, sin and sickness entered in.  Everything began to die.

But when Jesus came, He took sin and sickness on His own body.  And everyone who believes in Him shall live.

My prayer is that we all would get a greater revelation of what Jesus did on the cross.  I pray that we would all see these two things connected, and gain a greater understanding.   I pray that we would understand that with forgiveness comes healing in every way.

He is still asking that question today, “Which is easier to say, your sins are forgiven or rise up and walk?”

End 5 minutes.
