And immediately he [the paralytic] arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God?.?.?. —Mark 2:12

The paralytic did not break up the meeting when he was brought to Jesus and dropped down through the roof while Jesus was preaching. Jesus is our example. He was glad to have something like that happen, because it gave Him a chance to show His power. Jesus forgave the man all his sins and then made him rise, take up his bed, and walk.

The people began to shout, "Glory," the same way you do here. You cannot help it. If you have not done it you will. A consumptive woman was brought in here in her night robe. I did not care what she had on—she was healed. Hallelujah!

When the paralytic was healed, they gave glory to God. People say today, "You never heard such a noisy group." If they had only heard them then! We have something to make a fuss about. Dead people never make much noise, do they? There is not much noise in a graveyard!

Jesus, I praise You for Your healing
and delivering. Amen.
