We see broken people becoming whole, through the love of Christ.To build a community in which to belong, grow and serve. To love our neighbours by helping them overcome spiritual and physical needs. To contribute to Spirit-filled transformation in the city of Guelph.
As most of you know, I have a 6 year old. This means I see and overhear lots and lots of kids’ shows and movies! One of the funnier ones I’ve seen recently was Kung Fu Panda. The main character, Po, is an out of shape panda in China who absolutely loves Kung Fu! In the first movie, he is desperate to see his heroes, “the Furious Five,” do a live performance in a stadium. He misses getting in the doors and gets the idea to attach fireworks to a chair in order to rocket himself into the stadium! [video clip]
Our text today is one of my favourite incidents in Scripture from when I was growing up. It reminds me of Po’s desperate attempt to see his heroes. In our passage, four friends are desperate to see Jesus, but the crowds around him are so vast that they can’t even get to the door of the house Jesus is teaching in. They don’t have fireworks to make a rocket chair, so what did they do? Let’s take a look.
