IS THERE A DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE

“IS THERE A DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE?”
Is there a doctor in the house? That’s a question that is often asked whenever there is an emergency and the attention of an expert or trained physician is required.
Our text considers Jesus as he arrived in Capernaum looking for a place to rest after touring Galilee, preaching in a boat and healing large numbers of people. In Capernaum, Jesus found a house in which to reside and apparently was able to get a few days rest before word spread that he was in the city.
““IS THERE A DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE?”
The afflicted man of this text is one who had been stricken with palsy for many years. His name was not given; only that he “was sick of the palsy.”
This man had heard that there was a doctor in the house, who was healing the sick and wanted to be in the number.
Often people are drawn to the House of God from what they hear! We need to be careful about what we say about the Lord’s house. If people hear you say that:
–Your choir director is sorry!
–Your preacher is sorry!
–Your deacons are sorry!
–Your ushers are sorry!
–The program is sorry!
–The members are sorry!
No one is attracted to your house, because they have enough sorrows of their own!
