Always ready to be healed

From the May 28, 2018 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


Jesus’ healing of the impotent man at the pool of Bethesda as recorded in the Bible (see John 5:2–9 ) is the remarkable account of a man who, for 38 years, had been stuck, bed-bound, at the edge of a pool of water, waiting for the water to move. It was said that whoever got into the water first after the water began to move would be healed, but because the man was disabled, he could not reach the water before others did.
