Do You Want It? (John 5:1-8)Tommy Boring, November 9, 2016
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Wednesday service
It's unknown how God works amongst each of us. We can't tell whether there is a conviction or not because it's normally internal. But in any time when the Word of God is given, it's for someone in order for them to grow. If you've not been born again then you have an incurable disease. The church of Jesus Christ is the today's Bethesda. Politics is not going to save a person and if they are within a church and rule it, it's not longer a help. If you've tried what seems like everything and still are at a loss, try a true house of mercy. Not only is the house of God a house of mercy, it's also a house of misery. There is not a single person in a church that can judge another because they have been just as sinner as the next. It's also a house of hope for the hopeless. Do you feel as if God doesn't care for you? Christ died for you, He hung on a cross and took all of your sins upon Himself just for you. When Jesus comes to the House of God and knocks on someone's heart, He asks them if they want to be saved. All that needs to be done is a response, yes or no. There are people still to this day that don't want to be healed. They use their condition as a crutch to stay miserable. Unfortunately, for those people they will always be miserable until changed. When God changes you everyone will know it. Romans 10:13 Whosever. Do you want to be? Do you want peace?

1After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 2Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches. 3In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water. 4For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had. 5And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years. 6When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole? 7The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me. 8Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
