People turn to church for different reasons. What’s yours? Do you come to church to contribute or to “get something” out of it?

In Mark 2:1-4, some men brought a paralytic to Jesus to be healed. They couldn’t get to Jesus because of the crowd so they went to the roof, made a hole and lowered him down. Verse 5 says that when Jesus saw their faith, He forgave their sins. It doesn’t say He healed the physical ailment first, but that He forgave their sins. How many people in the room missed the big message? Probably most of them-just like most of us.
