In the healing of the paralytic man, there is an intriguing phrase in Luke 5:17—“And the power of the Lord was present for [Jesus] to heal the sick.” Even Jesus needed the power of the Lord to be present in order to heal the sick. I’m reminded of Mark 6:5 where Jesus could do no miracles except heal a few sick people. The Pharisees and teachers of the law missed out because they only came to find fault with Jesus. May the power of the Lord be present among us and may we be ready to receive it.
