55. Whatever It Takes

55. Whatever It Takes

What we can learn from the men who carried the mat

Show notes

In the gospels we read about a group of men who carried a paralyzed friend to Jesus with the hope that Jesus would heal him. That journey involved plenty of obstacles--some they anticipated, and some they did not. But through it all, they set out knowing they would do whatever it was going to take to get their friend to the feet of Jesus and having faith that Jesus would do a miracle. In this episode we explore this story from the perspective of those who were there to see what we can learn about what it means to do whatever it takes to get people to the feet of Jesus.
