Christ Can vs. Can Christ

My son Alexx faithfully text a morning & night time devotional thought everyday.

When he was a teenager the caretaker at Camp Keystone was Tony Bellis. Before, during and even years after camp Tony faithfully sent out scripture verses to encourage Alexx.

That was before my son was really dedicated to Christ and he said to me, “dad he’s doing that because it’s part of his job” I said, “no son he’s doing that above and beyond his job.”

A few years later Alexx dedicated his life to Christ and Jesus became his Lord. With this new life, Alexx no longer ask can Christ  do miracles? He accepted the fact that Christ can do miracles.

He allowed Jesus to show him personally what on God can do.

The way Christ changed my son from the inside out was a miracle but Christ didn’t do it until Alexx asked. He went from a young man using drugs to a cleaned up minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

In one of the villages, Jesus met a man with an advanced case of leprosy. When the man saw Jesus, he bowed with his face to the ground, begging to be healed. “Lord,” he said, “if you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean.”
Luke 5:12 NLT

Alexx pointed out to me that the young man in the scripture didn’t say Christ can you heal me?  He said Christ you can!

My son and I are both amazed how Christ, who is all powerful still gives us the freedom of choice he is willing to heal, the question is are we willing to let him heal us?
