In the first words Jesus said to the paralysed man were the words "Your sins are forgiven"! After He said this He healed the man! The order of this teaches us a great lesson! We must be careful! We need to make sure we don't just concentrate on God's power to heal physical sickness more than on his power to heal spiritual sickness in the form of sin! Jesus saw that even more than physical health, this man needed spiritual health! We all need spiritual health; and it comes only through Jesus' healing touch! That feeling of being satisfied and having purpose only comes through Jesus!
