Jesus: The Great Physician

John 5:1-9

John's Gospel is different from the others in that his primary goal is not to give men a historical treatment of the life of Jesus. John's purpose is to exalt the person of Jesus so that men believe on Him and be saved.

(John 20:30-31) And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: {31} But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

Our text this morning is found in John chapter five. Read: John 5:1-9. In these verses, Jesus is presented to us as The Great Physician. As such, He longs to take us from where are and bring us to where we need to be.

Let's observe Him as He delivers this man from the bondage of his affliction and as we do, please know that He can do the same for each of us if we will allow Him the opportunity.

I. A Sick Man v1-5

II. A Sympathetic Savior

III. A Supernatural Experience v6b-9

What is your need today? Jesus can meet that need and so much more. If you have never trusted in the finished work of Christ on Calvary as the only atonement for your sins, will you come by faith today?

If you are a believer, will you commit your life to Him today? God calls us to walk in obedience to His Word. Come today and totally surrender to the Lord this morning.
