In today's Gospel reading from John 5, Jesus saw a man lying by a pool and knew that he had been ill for a long time. He said to him, "Do you want to be well?" And because of his helplessness, Jesus cured him.
I can't help sensing that at times Jesus asks us this same question too. If you hear his voice, don't pass up the opportunity to answer yes. Better yet, ask him to make you well before you hear him ask.
