A Revealing Question

It is a busy waiting room . . . You recognise many around you . . . Then the doctor calls you to his consulting room.  Today it’s not the normal, “Good Morning. What can I do for you?’ Instead he’s asks a direct question, “Do you want to be well?” How daft is that! Why does he think I am here? . . . . . . . Roll back the years, roll back the centuries.
You are in a waiting room in Jerusalem. It has its own hydro-therapy pool. It’s the Sheep Gate Practice. Sometime called Bethesda . . .  Jesus seeing the man lying there and knowing he has been in this condition a long time asks him, “Do you want to get well?”
