Sunday Sermon Outline: John 5:1-16

"Do you wish to get well?"
John 5:1-16

I.  We see human needs met. vs. 1-7 
     “After these things there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. [2] Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep gate a pool, which is called in Hebrew Bethesda, having five porticoes. [3] In these lay a multitude of those who were sick, blind, lame, and withered, [ waiting for the moving of the waters; [4] for an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease with which he was afflicted.] [5] A man was there who had been ill for thirty-eight years. [6] When Jesus saw him lying there , and knew that he had already been a long time in that condition, He said to him, “Do you wish to get well?” [7] The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, but while I am coming, another steps down before me.””

II. We see divine power displayed. vs. 8-9
     “Jesus said to him, “Get up, pick up your pallet and walk.” [9] Immediately the man became well, and picked up his pallet and began to walk. Now it was the Sabbath on that day.”

Matthew 23:23

III. We see God's will accomplished. vs. 10-16
     “So the Jews were saying to the man who was cured, “It is the Sabbath, and it is not permissible for you to carry your pallet.” [11] But he answered them, “He who made me well was the one who said to me, ‘Pick up your pallet and walk.’” [12] They asked him, “Who is the man who said to you, ‘Pick up your pallet and walk’ ?” [13] But the man who was healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had slipped away while there was a crowd in that place [14] Afterward Jesus found him in the temple and said to him, “Behold, you have become well; do not sin anymore, so that nothing worse happens to you.” [15] The man went away, and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him well. [16] For this reason the Jews were persecuting Jesus, because He was doing these things on the Sabbath.”

Mark 8:18

Conclusion: John 9:3; 5:30; Matthew 23:37-38
