Random act of kindness is actually a sign
Legend: Angel stirred the water and the first one in the water would be healed (John 5:4)
The law did not forbid him but rather their tradition (“Tradition of the Elders”)
Religious leaders believed the healed man violated the Fourth Commandment
If you have the capacity, potential and resources, you honor God and others by seeking help
The point of the Fourth Commandment: Rest from labor but do not rest from love
We misunderstand and misapply scripture when we forget or ignore the WHY behind the WHAT
If what is best for people is not most important, then we are at odds with God
The healed man chose to obey the one who showed him compassion, not those who ignored and condemned him
The religious leaders also believed Jesus violated the Sabbath
The fear of religion and religious people loses its grip on those who recognize Jesus for who he is
Following Jesus brings freedom
How do we know what God is like? Watch Jesus
Some choose the written over the living (our understanding over a living demonstration)
The written Scriptures are a sign: All of it pointing to Jesus
SIGN: A distinguishing mark whereby something is known
Does your version of religion, theology, ideology, politics, etc get in the way of you loving people that God loves?
