In some ways we are all disabled: We are...
(Blind) Spirtually Blind –
Matthew 23:16-19 16"Woe to you, blind guides! You say, 'If
anyone swears by the temple, it means nothing; but if anyone swears by the gold

swears by the gift on it, he is bound by his oath.' 19You blind men!
Which is greater: the gift, or the altar that makes the gift sacred?
(Lame) Not walking the walk –
1 John 1:5-7 5This is the message we have heard from him
and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6If
we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do
not live by the truth.
(Paralyzed) Afraid to follow or move –
2 Chronicles 24:20 Then the Spirit of God came upon Zechariah son of Jehoiada the priest.
He stood before the people and said, "This is what God says: 'Why do you
disobey the LORD's commands? You will not prosper. Because you have forsaken
the LORD, he has forsaken you.' "
So what’s the cure?

nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and
of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have
commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the
Trust/Have faith –
