Beyond the Press: Take Off the Roof

As Jesus went about healing people from ALL kinds of diseases, casting out devils, and preaching the word (preaching himself), the crowds grew! The crowds were so large that they filled every space of the room and then some. Can you imagine Cornerstone being so filled that the occupancy of the building is beyond maximum capacity. So filled that the Fellowship Hall has to stream the service because the main sanctuary is ‘standing room’ only. So filled that the foyer, nurseries, Connect room, and Prayer room have to pipe in the sound of the Service because they can not get a visual of the Word (Jesus) being preached. Close your eyes for a moment. Imagine what it is like for The Christ to walk in the room, and His message; well His message is Himself! The hunger and thirst of the crowd had to be palpable. That crowd had to be ‘turnt’!

Remember the Superbowl Parade? The crowd was so tight, you could not actually walk through it. All you could do was sway from left to right, front to back and the crowd would move you. THAT, IS THE PRESS!!!!

But in Capernum, there were a group of individuals that went beyond the press. They wanted Jesus soooo bad, they were sooooo convinced that he was the Christ; their kingdom mindset prompted them to take the roof off the building!

What Jesus did after that is nothing less than what He wants to do for us today. But wait, there’s more!!!!! Here, I will let you read it for yourself. See if you can pick out that important pronoun.

3 And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four. 4 And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay. 5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy,…Mark 2

That’s right – THEY. A man with  a disability of paralysis could not get himself to Jesus. So, they brought him. Who are they? Cousins, friends, co-workers, or just bystanders? And when they could not get him into the building, they didn’t say to themselves, “let’s wait until the next service”, “He will preach again, we will catch up with him later.” No, they climbed on top of the house. They stood on each others shoulders. They grabbed the necessary supplies to build a scaffold. They made themselves into a construction crew and demo-ed the roof of the building. They invented a mechanism to lower the man into the house where Jesus preached. Abandoning concern for themselves and their needs,

 selflessly they lowered the man’s bed into the building.

Jesus’ response – “I see you”. When he saw their faith……well, we know the rest.

I say to you: Are you turnt? Can you recklessly abandon yourselves for others? Is there a sick or unsaved one in your family? At your job? In your neighborhood? Will you go beyond the press for them. Do you believe that the same power that worked yesterday, still works today? Is your church preaching the Word? Preaching Jesus?

Usually I end this blog with an agreement in prayer. But this time I want to issue you a challenge. If there is at least one person that you can think of who is in need of healing or one that is in need of salvation, I challenge you to abandon yourself, go beyond the press, and tear down the roof for _____________________ (fill in their name here). I challenge you to get to church 15 minutes early, begin to charge the atmosphere with praise and adoration to the King, before the Praise Team, lift up holy hands, take your praise from your seat to the aisle. I challenge you to demonstrate a determination that rivals the construction crew we saw in Capernaum!

en el nombre de Jesus
