Do You Want to Be Made Whole?

Jesus asked this rather obvious question to a man who had been crippled for thirty-eight years! Jesus understood the deeper issues involved. To be able to walk, he needed more that healthy feet. He needed to be made whole – body, soul and spirit. No compartmentalization. No boxes. Jesus saw this man from a holistic perspective. He was a life in need of transformation.

This is the starting place in our “walking in the truth.” Are we willing to let Jesus shatter our boxes? Will we allow the light of His truth to examine every area of our lives to expose all of the fragments and inconsistencies? Will we allow him to topple the false idols in our hearts and to expose every deceptive thought or desire?

We all want to walk. The quest is, “Do we want to walk in the way, in the truth and in the life?” (John 14:6) Our cry should not be, “God, give me more truth,” but rather, “God, make me true!” In my relationship with God, my spouse, my children, my neighbors, my friends and work relationships, my finances, my brothers and sisters in Christ – “in all things” – make me whole.

Do we want this much truth? Are we ready for this much life? Can we handle this much of God?
