Choose Life (Part Twenty): God Wants to Make Us.

Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?” (John 5:5-6, NKJV)
We continue this week with the story of the sick man healed at the Pool of Bethesda. [John 5:1-15].

The intent of our good works is not to earn God’s favor. It is the natural response of our encounter with grace. It is the outworking of the in-working of grace in our life. More than what God wants to give to us, He wants to make us. So, the big questions include,

In what ways 
...have your troubles changed you? ...have all your DOINGS and POSITIONINGS changed you? ...have they made you a man/woman capable of handling that which you desire?
Are they 
...using you, or are you using them? ...making you a better or a bitter person? ...making you ask the right or the wrong questions? ...empowering or emasculating you? 
The ball is in your court.

How are you going to play?
