Take up thy Bed and Walk.
"And behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed, and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; son be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee. And behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, this man blasphemeth. And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, wherefore think ye evil in your hearts? for whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, arise, and walk? But that ye may know that the son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house. And he arose, and departed to his house." Matthew 9: 2-7
As Jesus dealt with this man who had the palsy, he said: "thy sin be forgiven thee, arise, take up thy bed and walk." to us also to whom he has granted the forgiveness of sins, he would say: take up thy bed and walk. In other words, we ought not to be held down and hindered by the remembrance or the effect of past sins, but we are to have a new beginning from the point where we have received forgiveness of sins.. Let us arise and walk with our feet firmly planted on the earth, and our heart and head in heaven, because Jesus has the power and authority to not only forgive our sins and heal our body, but also , to delete from our soul all things that would keep us from being the successful children of God that he wants us to be.
Let us arise and go forward and expect great things from God and strive to do great things for God..
