Bringing the Paralyzed to Jesus

Luke 5:17-26 Have you ever been paralyzed? This could be physical, emotional, or spiritual paralyzation. I think many of us have been paralyzed at some time or another. We know the agony that comes with desiring to do something but not being able to will ourselves to do it. So there we sit, stuck in a rut or flat on a mat, waiting for something or someone to heal us. Do you know someone who is paralyzed right now? Again, this could be physical, emotional, or spiritual.
