'Do you want to be made well?'

May 5, 2012
By The Rev. Dr. ROB MANZINGER Special to the Sun-Gazette , Williamsport Sun-Gazette

Most of us get steamrolled at some point in life. Something comes along - some disease, some circumstance, some broken relationship, some loss - something comes along that knocks us off our feet and sends us staggering through life. Such a man Jesus meets in Beth-zither sitting next to the sheep gate pool known for its healing powers. We don't know exactly what was wrong with him, but we do know he had borne his infirmity for 38 years. And the first question Jesus asks him is an odd one to inquire of an invalid: "Do you want to be made well?" (John 5:6)
