"See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you." Yikes!
A man received a blessing and then receives a warning.
How many times have we been blessed by God and then go back to our normal lives?
I come upon this passage a least twice a year in my normal devotional reading and it always puzzles me. A blessing then a warning.
Our lives are to be changed by an encounter with God. There is a difference in us. We are transformed. If we just remain the same, was there really a change?
Go in peace and go with God.
