Immediately Jesus, aware in His spirit that they were reasoning that way within themselves, said to them, “Why are you reasoning about these things in your hearts? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven’; or to say, ‘Get up, and pick up your pallet and walk’?10But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—He *said to the paralytic, “I say to you, get up, pick up your pallet and go home.” And he got up and immediately picked up the pallet and went out in the sight of everyone, so that they were all amazed and were glorifying God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this.” Mark 2:8-11 (NASB)
TThe church in its beginning was devoted to the apostles teaching, to the Lord’s Supper, the fellowship, and prayer…. The were all filled with awe!
Perhaps, we need to check our devotion to the scripture (Acts 2:42,43; Rev 1:3; 3:14 – 22).
