"Our generation is more concerned about the toxins in their food than the sin in their souls."

This is a quote by our pastor during our current study of Luke 2 - the story of the men who bring their paralyzed friend to Jesus, lowering him through the roof, so he could be healed.

As humans we seek to heal, and control, the body.
Jesus looks past the body to the true source of decay and death - the SOUL.

When the faith-filled men believed Jesus could heal their friend, Jesus astounded everyone when He healed his SOUL first. "I say to you, your sins are forgiven."
And then He healed his physical disease. "Rise up and walk."

Oh, Lord, make us care about the things YOU care about - first.
And then - trust You with everything that follows.
