It seems like every time you turn on the TV, there is a preacher promising you blessings - if you would just give to their cause. They claim the Bible promises prosperity to those with enough faith, with enough generosity, who are willing to give to their cause. But what exactly does God promise us in this area? It may not be what you think.
You have a purpose in life... do you know what it is? Did you know it was prepared for you before you were ever born? Do you know how to find it?
Who ever heard of healing a man born blind? But that's exactly what Jesus did. What can we learn about Jesus from this miracle? That what we find out in this message.
Take a closer look at the Feeding of the 5000 - what do you see? Do you see more than just a miracle? Do you see the concern that Jesus had for the ministry of his disciples? For the needs of the people? Do you see his abundant provision? What about his divine act of creation?
Sometimes God seems unfair - but that is because he is God and we do not always understand what he is doing. The healing at the Pool of Bethesda teaches us much about both the humanity and the divinity of Jesus.
