Which do you think is simpler: to say, ‘I forgive your sins,’ or, ‘Get up and walk’? In my reflection on this passage I have to stop and think which is the greater miracle. To make a paraplegic walk or to forgive sins. Jesus puts both of them in contrast here. In todays world, miracles are (magic of the flesh or anything that cannot be explained in science). We are actually more inclined to believe in aliens than in the power of God. Anyway I digress. The point is, what is the simpler miracle : Miracle of the flesh, or miracle of the spirit (which is how I would class these). The answer depends on where we place or focus. For Christ, he came seeing the world we live in through immortal eyes. For him the greatest miracle is a change of heart because that is more lasting. One day our bodies will wither and die and the paraplegic who once walked will again walk no more. But to forgive his sins was to give legs and life to his immortal soul. The danger is to live this life thinking that you have everyday for the rest of your life because then even the priorities of our lives become priorities of the flesh not spirit. Everything we have will be gone. Fortunes made and squandered, lives lost and regained. The blind will see and the seeing will go blind. Nothing under the sun has not been seen before. God is only interested in the soul. Thats why upon seeing the paraplegic, Jesus was not moved by his physical condition as much as the condition of his soul. It was important that His soul was first healed. When the focus is on eternity priorities change from what to wear and what your car should look like to how to save souls and heal the spiritually sick through the simple message of Christ. Who by the way never wore nice clothes or drove fancy cars.
Go figure out what this Scripture means: ‘I’m after mercy, not religion.’ I’m here to invite outsiders, not coddle insiders.” This passage ripped me out of my comfort zone. Its so easy to associate with brethren in the Church and hope that through your actions and holy life, the outside will look at you and see Christ without you associating with them. Jesus will ask, "Is that what i sent you to do? Did i send you to save the healed? Did i give you this precious gift of salvation so you could keep it in nice wrapping and never open for all the world to see? I gave you so much and you did so little." Mercy is such a powerful word. One that has become obsolete in this day and age. Or one that has been made to signify weakness. Mercy is about extending grace to those who least deserve it. I have spent the last year opening my eyes to religion in the church. Asking why we do some of the things we do. Asking myself why we are in a building every Sunday looking/smelling nice or both. Why we are not doing the work that was intended from the start. Ministry is not for the elite saved or for those that have has God appear to them in their living room? Or for those that have a pulpit to preach at every Sunday. We each must have our own personal ministries based on where we have been placed and the gifts we have been given. The formula is simple, start with an act of love. Find common ground and relate to the kingdom, let the Holy spirit do the rest. Let us have mercy on the lost. Salvation is theirs not for the people who have it and choose to do nothing about it. Do not get trapped in religious activities. None of that matters, for people will make noise and to amazing things in the name of Religion but at the end of the day all that was ever act was an act of love. Have Mercy. Save A Soul.

Yesterdays message at church was a great one, it stirs up the hunger inside of me, 3 questions that i need to answer seriously: and maybe you can ask yourself too
1. What will it take to really satisfy me? 2.How am i going to treat others? 3.who do you want to please in this life?
I do admit that the answers to this questions sometimes does not inline with what GOD wants. thats why it is soo powerful and it struck me. I need to examine my heart and realign my priorities. I wanna be the person whom GOD is greatly delighted.
This fall Michelle and I are enjoying our weekend work at the PERSIAN NIGHTS corn maze at LYND'S FRUIT FARM near Pataskala. I am throwing myself into a different kind of engineer work; not civil, but barrel trains. The kiddies love it and after a six hour shift of yelling "All aboard!" and making dozens if steam-whistle sounds I am always ready to come home and watch football. I pull twelve cars made out of old 55-gallon drum plastic barrels with a mini-tractor. Grandpa Brooks built the train and no one has really ever seen anything like it. The kids love it. And on football Saturdays to entertain the parents one of my tricks is to drive the train into a tight circle and shout "O-H". Michelle is hanging on as a cashier, it gets a little crazy sometimes when we get a rush of people, but experience working at a OSU Bookstore during the first week of classes has prepared her well. If you live in the Central Ohio area you should really investigate coming out to LYND's for a fall weekend day, it is quite a memorable country experience not too far from Columbus.
