A Hopeless Invalid

August 14, 2022 Pastor: Bill Thompson Series: Conversations with Jesus

Passage: John 5:1–17



Sometimes what we think is our greatest need is not really our greatest need.




  1. When we meet Jesus, He _______________ us out in the crowd.


“One man was there who had been an invalid for thirty-eight years.” v. 5



  1. When we meet Jesus, He always gets to the ______________ of the matter.


“Do you want to be healed?” v. 6



III.  When we meet Jesus, He wants to ______________ our religious traditions.


“Now that day was the Sabbath.”  v. 9







Application Questions


  1. Why do you think Jesus only healed the one man? Was He unloving toward the others?
  2. Do you identify more with the invalid man or the religious leaders? Why?
  3. What religious traditions are hindering you from loving others?
  4. What will it take for you to want to be healed?
