This narrative in Mark is one of the most fascinating and touching stories. It reports the efforts of 4 friends who were determined to get their sick friend to Jesus. While the friend was eventually healed of his infirmity, he received a bigger blessing - the forgiveness of sins. His encounter with Jesus would ensure that his life would indeed be a better version of his former self. A follower of Jesus is destined for a life that is dramatically better than their life before their encounter with Jesus.
- Mark 2:1-11
