Matthew 9: 6-7 ” Then He said to the paralytic, ‘Get up, take your mat and go home.’ And the man got up and went home.”

A group of friends brought a paralyzed man to the Lord and Jesus  gave him a three-stage command.  “Stand up on your once useless legs,  pick up and carry the mat you were brought here on, and go home and witness.   Jesus was asking the paralytic to do something he couldn’t do before …”Stand to your feet.”  Jesus then commanded him to pick up his only means of transportation and carry what had carried him in the past.  And finally, He said, ” Go home and testify of your  healing to everyone that  has only known you as a paralytic…and take the mat as a remembrance. “
