name your 4

4 Friends
REFERENCE
Mark 2:3,5 [ESV]
3 And they came, bringing to him a paralytic carried by four men...
5 And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, Son, your sins are forgiven

EXPLORATION

This is perhaps one of the most intriguing passages in the Bible.
Seeing the faith of “the four men” – Jesus tells the paralytic, “Son, you sins are forgiven”
It wasn’t the faith of the paralytic – it was the faith of his friends.
name your 4

APPLICATION

There are times in my life when I belong on a stretcher.
Physically
Spiritually
Emotionally
I can name 4 guys that would carry me to Jesus:
Keith Lane, Norm Holmskog, Tony Redfern, and Frank Yanes
name your 4

PRAYER
Father,
The names I mentioned are but a few of the many I’d trust to bring me to you.
May I be just as available to them and to others.
You created us for community.
Nowhere in Scripture is that more evident than in this passage.
Fill the lives of all who read this with “others” that their lives may be filled with Jesus.
Allow them to name their 4
