The curing of the paralyzed men lowered through the roof by his friends shows the power of Jesus to do the work of God. The faith of the paralyzed man is essential to his healing.

The faith and hope of his friends also shows forth the power of God. They believe that Jesus is the Messiah.

Dear God, may I look for You today in my midst. May I seek out the miraculous in the ordinary. Strengthen my faith and hope that I might love.
