      Focus: Great Lent Week 3 - Sin and Healing

      1. Foreword

      An integral part of lent, in addition to prayer and fasting, is

      three. ..

      5. Featured: Jesus Heals a Paralyzed Man

      6. Reflection on Mark 2:1-12 - This Sunday's Gospel Reading
      To us, this is one more proof that Jesus was the Son of God. If an
      average sinful human being claimed to be able to forgive sins, we would
      know he was blaspheming. But when a virgin-born, sinless,
      miracle-working person forgives someone's sins, it's just one more proof
      of what we would already suspect: God had become a man! ...

      7. A Strange Thing Jesus Said to a Paralyzed Man

      God sees things rather differently than we do. There is much to consider
      the fact that Jesus says to a paralyzed man, "your sins are forgiven." ..

      8. Defend Your Soul Against Sins

      Without realizing it, many Christians have allowed Satan to establish
      strongholds in their lives. One of the greatest hindrances to living a
      godly life is carnality, which can prevent us from praying and knowing
      the mind of God. If left unattended, carnality can build power bases of
      self-centeredness deep within our hearts and minds. ...

      9. Captive No More

      Sin is a horrible master, and it finds a willing servant in the human
      body. Sin wants to dominate you, but the good news is that as a
      Christian, you don't have to be dominated by sin any longer. ...

      10. How Spiritual Are You? - Restoration From Sin

      To be "caught in any transgression" can mean to fall suddenly into sin,
      like stepping into a bear trap. We didn't mean to get angry, but got
      into an emotional discussion and next thing lashed out in anger. We
      didn't intend to lust, then an image presented itself, and we gave into
      it. ...

      11. Should I Fight or Be Still?

      We must fight to keep righteousness in our own lives, refusing choices
      which lead to sin and death. We must fight for love, which means making
      really hard choices and overcoming our natural selfish inclinations. We
      must fight for endurance, keeping promises, covenants, and our integrity
      in a way worthy of Christ Jesus. Sometimes God calls us to fight, and
      sometimes he tells us to be still. How can we decipher it? ...
