In the New Testament stories of Jesus healing someone, he always brought the person being healed face to face with the one impossible thing in their life. For example in Matt 9:28 two blind men wanted sight. Jesus asked “Do you believe I am able to do this?” In response to their faith he touched them and they were able to do what they could not do – see! In another healing Jesus drove a demon out of a man who was mute, and the man was able to do what he could not do – speak (ibid 32-33).
It is also true that many are kept away from Christ by one thing: Pride of the eyes, lust of the flesh, or a habit; it is always one thing. If it were at all possible for all the fog to melt away that is about us and we could clearly see, and have a minute of real honesty with our friends, family, and co-workers who have never yielded to Christ, it would be found in every case there is one thing hindering a person from coming to Christ.
As an example remember Jesus spoke to the rich ruler and said, “One thing you lack.” Jesus pointed out the one thing that kept him from the Kingdom of God. The example makes my point, Jesus method is always that of bringing men and women face to face with the one thing that is the master paralysis of their life.
What is your one thing?
