“Do you want to get well?” Jesus asked. He had just asked this question of a man that had been an invalid for 38 years, lying beside a pool in a town called Bethesda. The reason the invalid was there, along with a sizable number of people with medical disorders, was because the first person to enter the pool after an angel troubled the waters, became healed. So you see, Sir, I would like to be healed; but I have nobody to take me down to the pool. Every time the angel troubles the water, someone else gets there before me. “Pick up your mat and walk,” Jesus said.
