Cure on a Sabbath

John 5:1-16

Water is an important part of all of today’s readings, significant given the Lenten theme of the living water of baptism. A man who has been ill for a very long time waits at a place with water known for its healing power. Though he is unable to get into the water, he is healed by Jesus’ word. What should have amazed the Jews angered them because it was the Sabbath.

Prayer: How sad it is when people see only what they want to see, including me. Today, I pray that we see with our hearts all that you have to offer.
