Truth Quest Update: Jesus Healed a Man's Hand

Jesus is the Lord of the Sabbath, meaning that He has control. But Jesus hadn’t come to get rid of the Sabbath; He wanted to remind the people that God intended for the Sabbath to be a blessing to His people, a day of rest from their hard work. By healing on the Sabbath, Jesus showed that God’s laws were meant to help people, not to hurt them. Jesus acted in love, even on the Sabbath. The religious leaders planned to kill Jesus. They did not know Jesus was going to die to show God’s love to the whole world. God provided forgiveness and salvation through Jesus’ death on the cross....Read More

Alive Update: Worship, The Right Response

We started our three-lesson study on Worship, and our first message entitled “The Right Response,” helped us learn that worship is the right response that results from our encountering God. We were challenged to begin to be aware of where and how they are encountering God, and to be intentional about responding in worship once we encounter Him....Read More

Truth Quest Update: Four Friends Helped

Jesus asked the Pharisees, “Which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’?” Simply saying, “Your sins are forgiven,” seems to be the easier thing, but to actually forgive sins is harder, something only God can do. The man who was paralyzed needed to be healed. Jesus knew this and did something even greater; Jesus forgave his sins, and then He healed the man. Because Jesus is God, He has the power and authority to heal and forgive. Jesus offers forgiveness to those who trust in Him....Read More

Truth Quest Update: Jesus Cleansed a Leper

A man with leprosy approached Jesus and fell down before Him. “If You are willing, You can make me clean,” he said to Jesus. The man’s words were more of a truthful declaration than a request. He clearly trusted in Jesus’ power to heal people, and he longed to be healed himself. Jesus reached out and touched the man. “I am willing,” He said. Not only did Jesus have the power to make a leper clean, He was willing to make him clean. Like the disease of leprosy, sin deeply affects all people and makes them spiritually dead. Jesus willingly died on the cross and rose from the dead to save us from our sin and give us new life....Read More

Truth Quest Update: Jesus Healed Peter's Mother-in-Law

The prophet Isaiah wrote that the promised Messiah would bear our sickness and carry our pain. Jesus fulfilled this prophecy as He healed people. Sickness exists because the world is broken by sin. One day, when Jesus returns, there will be no more sickness because Jesus dealt with sin on the cross. Jesus’ healings brought a glimpse into the kingdom of God, the world in which Jesus makes all things new - the way God intended - when He comes again. (See Rev. 21:4-5.)...Read More
