Jesus forgave a paralyzed man, but the critics of Jesus questioned whether He had the power to forgive people of their sins.
To demonstrate that He had the power, the authority, to forgive sins, He said,
“‘But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins’—then He said to the paralytic, ‘Arise, take up your bed, and go to your house’” (Matthew 9:6).
Then Matthew wrote,
“And he arose and departed to his house” (Matthew 9:7).
By this miracle Jesus proved that He had the power of heaven, which means He has the power to forgive sins.
Have you submitted yourself to Him for the forgiveness of your sins?
