The Power of God in Jesus

Jesus displayed the power of God, saying to a man who had a debilitating disease for thirty-eight years, “Rise, take up your bed and walk” (John 5:8).
Jesus spoke a command to a man and it healed him! Verse 9 says, “And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked. And that day was the Sabbath” (John 5:9).
Stand back and be astonished at the mighty power of Jesus! Yet, John added that this happened on the Sabbath. That means trouble for Jesus. The leaders of the Jews could not rejoice in the healing of a man, but objected because Jesus did it on the Sabbath.
Let us rejoice in good works and be slow to criticize.
