This New Adventure

Jesus said to him, Rise, take up your bed, and walk.

John 5:8

When we read in scripture about The Healing at the Well, we are looking at an amazing example of the recovery process. Here was a man who was struggling with an affliction. This man happened to have a physical condition that caused him to not be able to walk. He also had some problems with the way he viewed the world. He attempted to get well on his own and blamed others for not helping him get what he needed to be well.

This same story is played out today. Very few of us have been able to ask for help with our struggles. We blamed others for our circumstances. On one hand, we thought that others should simply help us without us having to ask. And on the other, we blamed them when they did not help. We had an entitlement, victim mentality, and that kept us stuck. We, like the man at the pool, could never move past where we were in our lives.

Jesus suddenly entered the picture and everything changed. Jesus asked the man if he wanted to get well. It would be natural to think the man would say yes, and that would be the end of it. That’s not what happened. The man started making all kinds of justifications and rationalizations for why he could not get well. Sounds a lot like us right before we came into recovery. Jesus said to the man to pick up his bed and walk away. He was saying to the man that he didn’t belong there anymore. Like the man at the pool, Jesus will tell us when it’s time to move on. Recovery in Christ allows us to pick up our beds and walk away. We don’t belong in our old lives anymore.

Today’s Prayer

Father God, Just as Jesus told the man at the pool to get up and walk, we too are to get up, pick up our beds, and walk away from whatever is in our old life. No more excuses, blaming, and wasting precious time not doing anything with our lives. Thank You for this opportunity to walk away from the old life and into Your new life.
Amen.
