This New Adventure

One who was there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to get well?”

“Sir,” the invalid replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.”

John 5:5-7

The story of the disabled man at the Pool of Bethesda gives us an excellent view of the themes that run through a person’s life. I just a few lines in scripture we see that this man had several themes going on.   His first is that he bought into a myth. He lived his entire life based on something that was not real. Second, he set himself up for failure. There was no way he would ever be the first to reach the water without help from others. Third, he lived his life from the perspective of victimization. He used the excuse that others rushed ahead of him when he was trying to go to the pool to justify his condition in life.

Christ-centered recovery allows us to see the themes that have been going in our lives. Not just the negative themes but the positive ones as well. Having other believers around us who can help to identify the themes that come up in our lives is vital to us growing in Christ. If we don’t have those people around us who love us enough to point out what we don’t see, we tend to end up like the man at the Pool of Bethesda.

In many ways, we are all like the man by the pool. We lived our lives putting our hopes and aspirations into the things of this world that could never fulfill us. Then, Jesus comes into our lives and asks us one simple question. He asks us if we want to get well. Christ knows the answer to His question. We give Him all the excuses in the world for why we do what we do, and He loves us anyway. Then He takes us through a process of change called Christ-centered recovery.  Recovery gives us the amazing blessing of opening our eyes to the themes that have been running through our lives. We then get to address those themes and allow Christ to be the main theme of our lives.

Today’s Prayer

Father God, made us aware of the theme that occurs over and over in our lives that we cannot see. Help us to make the themes of love and grace our most prevalent themes. Amen.
