A farmer was retiring and needed to sell his land.
He also needed to rid the farm of animals.
So he went to every house in his town.

To the houses where the man is the boss, he gave a horse.
To the houses where the woman is the boss, he gave a chicken.

He got toward the end of the street and saw a couple outside
gardening. "Who's the boss around here?" he asked.
"I am." said the man. "
I have a black horse and a brown horse," the farmer said,
"which one would you like?"

The man thought for a minute and said, "The black one."
"No, no, no, get the brown one." the mans wife said.

"Here’s your chicken." said the farmer.

Mark 2:3-4
3 And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy,
which was borne of four.
4 And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press,
they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken
it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.

LIGHT from the WORD.

Faith in Christ is both substance and evidence.
It is the substance of full reliance upon an eternal, loving Savior.
Faith is evidenced by action exhibiting its presence in our lives.

In our text for today (Mark 2:3-4), above, we see two
evidences of faith.

First, faith is exhibited in compassion.
The man who was unable to bring himself to Christ,
was “bourne” by four others.
They literally carried him to Jesus!

Second, faith is exhibited by inventiveness.
When the four men could not get the crippled man through
the crowd, they literally “tore up the roof!”
Then, they let the man down by cords while he lay on his bed.

Christians, are you exhibiting your faith?
Exhibit compassion, knowing the lost are headed for eternal hell!
When their ears are “hard of hearing,” exhibit inventiveness
to tell them the Gospel!

Love ya!
