Jesus Heals a Ceiling Fan

Passage: Luke 5:17-26

Summary

Desperation will drive you to do some radical things--things you might never dream of doing otherwise.

Sermon Questions
  1. Read Luke 5:17-26. What is the point of this story in your words?
  2. What do you think the greatest need of your life is? Here’s my question: What if your greatest need is different than your most pressing desire? What if the greatest, most pressing need of your life is for forgiveness?
  3. According to Luke, Jesus did this miracle not so much because of the lame man’s faith, but because of the faith of his friends. On behalf of their faith--their desperate faith--Jesus healed him. Well, why didn’t this man ask for it himself? How did Jesus use his friend’s faith?
  4. Here is something to consider: When the paralyzed man could do little for himself, it was the active faith of his friends that made the difference. React to that statement.
  5. A question from the application of the sermon...What paralyzed person around you has God put in your heart to pray for? A friend? A prodigal child? A parent? A whole people group?
