Do You Want to Get Well?

After some recent prayer and some strong conviction from the Holy Spirit, I feel like this quote from John 5:1-15 is a question that I, and hopefully all of us here at ELEEO, need to ask ourselves with truth and rigorous honesty.  As of late, I feel that many of us have fallen into a funk or a place of contentment in our sin, our recovery, and our progression forward.. Possibly even a sliding back to a place where we are working on our own to get "close" to the healing waters, but not able to get push ourselves into the bath.  Yet, it is only through Him, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, that we can be healed.  And to do that, we need to surrender - and commit - to this program, to the work involved, and to the honest truth it entails.  I can drastically state that I do want to be well, that I want to overcome this, and that "I" need to be out of the equation.  He can do this through me, and through all of you working as His hands and feet.  We need to be there for one another, asking the hard questions, stating the truth in love, and holding one another up to a level and expectation that is owed to the Lord.  Do you want to get well?  Then let's work together.  Let's call one another.  Let's pray for strength, wisdom and clarity.  And let's entrust Jesus to be the center of our lives.  All of my prayers, love, and blessings to us all.
