One person there had been sick for thirty-eight years. Jesus, who knew this person had been sick for a long time said, “Do you want to be healed?”
As the lame man lay beside the pool of healing – yet helpless to get into the pool – so am I caged by my own self-narrative. I cannot go anywhere my narrative does not allow. This is not necessarily a lament, after all, I have a life’s investment in my self-narrative. I want people to know it. I want to be known by it.
