Jesus Witnessed Their Faith

Courage, child, your sins are forgiven.

Matthew 9:2

Happy July 4th and two-hundred and forty-eight birthday United States of America! In South Dakota, we proclaim our state motto: “Under God the people rule.” In today’s Gospel out of Mathew chapter 9:1-8, Jesus, our King, our ruler, shows his almighty love and compassion through his healing power given to him by God, the Father.

“And there people brought to him a paralytic lying on a stretcher. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Courage, child, your sins are forgiven. At that, some of the scribes said to themselves, “This man is blaspheming.” Jesus knew their thoughts and said, “Why do you harbor evil thoughts? Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Rise and walk’? But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”: he then said to the paralytic, “Rise, pick up your stretcher and go home.” He rose and went home. When the crowds saw this, they were struck with awe and glorified God who had given such authority to men.

Indeed, under God the people rule!
