In Him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.
Ephesians 1:7

Imagine crowding into a small house to hear Jesus speak and standing on your tiptoes to see over the heads of the people in front of you.

All of a sudden a hole opens in the roof above your head and a man on a cot is lowered down. Jesus forgives the man’s sins and heals him miraculously (Luke 5:17-26).

The friends of the crippled man in this passage do a lot to get Jesus’ attention. They carry him to the house where Jesus is teaching.

Since they can’t get close enough to Jesus, they climb onto the roof and lower the man down so that he can be healed. If you read the passage carefully, you see that it wasn’t all the work they did to get him there that brought forgiveness to the paralytic; the text says, “When Jesus saw their faith, he said to him, ‘Friend, your sins are forgiven'” (Luke 5:20).

No amount of work will earn God‘s forgiveness. It is given to you by God’s grace through your faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.

Take a minute right now to give Him glory for granting you forgiveness, through His abundant grace.
