We have looked at the Samaritan woman at the well and Esther. Today we will focus on the crippled woman whom Jesus healed on the sabbath.
The crippled woman healed Luke 13: 10 – 17
Jesus was teaching in one of the Synagogues on the Sabbath and a woman was there who had a disabling spirit which crippled her for 18years. She was bent over and could not straighten up. It is said that the bones of her spine were rigidly fused together.
What she didn’t realize was that it was her moment to be set free.
Jesus saw her and called her forward. Amazing how Jesus took NOTICE of her and he too Notices us…..everything about us!
Like the woman at the well, Jesus spoke first, “Woman, you are SET FREE from your infirmity.” He put his hand on her and IMMEDIATELY she straightened up and praised God.
Woman, you are set free. He laid hands on her and IMMEDIATELY she straightened up and praised God. The woman was freed from her physical handicap.
In order to be a woman or man that is set free, we need to come to Jesus.
When we are set free, we have a testimony.
Ephesians 2:10 says “For we are God’s workmanship, (we are His work of art, His Masterpiece) created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God has prepared in advance for us to do.” We are a work of art, not something to be crumpled up and thrown away. We are a Masterpiece!
The truth of your value is that God loves you. It’s not determined by the clothes you wear, the car you drive, your job, the house you live in, titles etc. God loves you!
When you understand this truth and know this truth, it will set you free. When you are free, you are free indeed!
The woman at the well told the town “I met a man who told me everything about myself”. Her testimony got many people saved.
Esther had her Supernatural response and the Jewish people were saved.
After 18 years, this crippled woman had her life-changing encounter with Jesus. From being bent, she was set FREE and straightened up and praised God.
What is holding you back today? Are you bound and want to be set free? Jesus is here today and we will pray for you.
AMEN & God Bless You.
