Sermon on the Sunday of the Paralytic - John 5:1-15.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, One God. Amen.
“I have no one to help me.”
It’s one of the most miserable phrases a person can say. It’s even worse than being terminally ill. If there is someone by the side of the terminally ill person, they can help that person by sharing in their pain, by being by them and providing comfort.
But having no one by your side, no matter if you are well or sick, must be one of the worst feelings possible.
