Lesson 17B – Matthew 8–9, Mark 1:23–2:12; 5:21–6:6, Luke 7–8 Miracles
An old saying… When you are healthy, you have 100 wishes, but when you are sick, you have only 1 wish. To be healthy Today we are talking about people who are disabled and come to the Lord. Each of you have a disability on a card. Imagine this was your disability. – How would your life be different? What would you be unable to do? How would your perspective change?
Mark 1:23-2:12 These verses contain accounts of people who were disabled in various ways. Read through and log each miracle. Answer (in the middle column): – What disability afflicted this person? – What miracle did Jesus perform to help the person? – What, if anything, did the person do to aid in the miracle?
Do healings happen today? Mormon 9:15-19 – “he ceaseth not to be God, and is a God of miracles” What blessing might be greater than having a physical disability healed? President Harold B. Lee
Healing of Sick Souls “The greatest miracles I see today are not necessarily the healing of sick bodies, but the greatest miracles I see are the healing of sick souls” (in Conference Report, Apr. 1973, 178; or Ensign, July 1973, 123). Why would the healing of sick souls be greater than the healing of sick bodies? Do you believe the Savior has power to heal us from spiritual disabilities? Mark 2:5-12
Revisit your disability In what ways could you experience that disability spiritually? Which version of the disability would you prefer to have healed? Why? Alma 7:11-13 – “the Son of God suffereth according to the flesh that he might take upon him the sins of his people”
Notebook Ideas What spiritual disabilities have you experienced in your life? How have you overcome them? What are the feelings of being healed? How else can we experience those same feelings?
