What You Need

in Jesus

What do you really need? Find out in today's Bible Minute from John 5:7.

When Jesus was walking around there was this pool in Bethesda that people thought that an angel would come and stir and heal you. Listen to this verse.

"The sick man answered Him," (verse 7) "'Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up.'" Now that doesn't seem to be fair.

The issue in life is never: Is it fair? The issue in life is always: Is God able to change your situation?

So Jesus says to the man--verse 8--"'Rise, take up your bed and walk.' And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked."

Thirty-eight years he had been withering away. Jesus comes along and says, "Do you want to be made well?" And he says, "Well, of course." Jesus doesn't say to him, "I'll pick you up and put you in the water Myself." Jesus simply says to him, "Get up. You don't need the pool of Bethesda." What you need is Jesus.
