Sixth Sunday of Easter 2016 – John 5:1

Tuesday, April 26, 2016

John 5:1After this there was a festival of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

Whenever I read verses that start like this, I have read what happened just before.  In John 4:46-54, Jesus heals the son of a royal official, so a man who likely served under Herod.   Despite his role in the government, he had great faith in Jesus.  Sensing his sincerity, his faith, Jesus healed his son.

Gracious God, you ask us to love our enemies.  Help us to live boldly enough to risk loving all people for your sake.  Amen.
