Healing and the Pool of Bethseda

So many people seek to judge others who are doing their best to help those around them. I am thinking not of myself here, but some recent comments which saddened me as I read online about a certain type of healing. Life is always difficult when people get in the way with our egos and our opinions and our supposed knowing of everything. The rules! Oh, we must always follow all the rules! But Jesus taught us that the only rule is Love. Jesus himself got into trouble with those around him for breaking the cultural and religious rules of the day.

I am reminded often of John 5; the Healing at the Pool of Bethseda, where Jesus heals a man on the Sabbath. The local leaders, rather than seeing the good work that was done by Jesus, choose to condemn him for 'working' on the Sabbath. And essentially Jesus's response was - 'What could be more Godly than helping another to heal?' ie doing God's good work? How better to honour God? God works 24-7 for us, so we should work for him in the same way, always seeking to help others and not ceasing to do so because of a rule.  

Let's just remember guys, to keep it simple. And remember Jesus's words in John 13:34

A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
