Jesus Helped People to Walk and So Can You
Jesus does not just invite us to follow Him—He gives us the power to do it. In His day, He healed those who could not walk and helped them rise physically and spiritually. Today, we live in a world that offers more ways than ever to assist those living with limited mobility, giving us an unprecedented opportunity to follow the Savior.

“5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.”
