Yesterday we talked about Jesus’ facetime with yet another man in need. It seems to be a common occurrence with Jesus. We saw that Jesus intentionally went to the pool because He knew many blind, lame, and paralyzed sick people gathered there. As Pastor Paul said yesterday, around that same pool was this man who had been sick for 38 years. Jesus saw this man in his hopelessness and wanted to heal the man to restore his hope and bring him new life. Jesus does the same for us. He seeks us in our hopeless situations and brings us hope. Without Him, we remain without hope.

Take a few minutes and listen to one of the songs we did during the weekend gathering: ‘Break Every Chain.’

Like the sick man, what hopeless situation(s) are you dealing with that has(have) robbed you of your hope?

As you listen to the song, allow the words to penetrate your heart and begin to allow the power of the name of Jesus to rekindle the flame of hope that only He can bring. With Jesus there is always hope because “there is power in the name of Jesus to break every chain.”

Break Every Chain

There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus

To break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain

All sufficient sacrifice
So freely given
Such a price
Bought our redemption
Heaven’s gates swing wide

There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus

To Break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain

There’s an army rising up
There’s an army rising up
There’s an army rising up

To Break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain

There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus
There is power in the name of Jesus

To Break every chain
Break every chain
Break every chain
