In John 5, Jesus asks the man who had been crippled for 38 years, “do you want to get well?”.

At first this seems like a cruel, insensitive question, but when you really investigate it and understand the nature of human beings, you begin to understand the reason for his question. After 38 years of people caring for him, do you want the responsibility that comes with wellness?

This was a powerful and revealing question asked to the man in John 5. It’s just as powerful for the men living at The Way…and for each of us seeking Jesus.
