Jesus heals on Sabbath Day
The dilemma of Sabbath day is one that continues to hound society even now.  Is it to kept as a holy day, or should the marketeers take advantage of it?  This is not a decision that should have been made by any person on Earth, as the concept of Sabbath is one given to us by God.  Since God created it, only God and Jesus control the events of that day.  In the case of the crippled woman, the priest would be right from the pint of view of mankind.  But Jesus makes a valid correction to our understanding.  Healing is something that cannot be blocked into six days of the week.  As the animals need a release from bondage,  the crippled lady was also released from her bondage with Satan.  We should all hope that Jesus or God will view our own bondages under the same kindness and gentleness.  Amen

People often blame God for allowing suffering, but who does Jesus hold responsible for this woman`s suffering?
Satan had her in his tangles. She cried for help and believed in Jesus healing releasing power and so she was saved. She knew that she was helpless and she asked for God`s help and guidance and she was pulled out of the pit. She knew eyes to see that she was prey to the evil one and saw the way out in God. Saved and free - free to walk in His Commandments. So we are resposnible to different degrees - depending on individual circumstances - for letting the devil entangle us. Suffering - the evil we outpour and entangle other people with - weeds spreading and sprouting - is a consequence. But when cleansed we bear good fruit. WE have to ask to be cleansed though.

A Crippled Woman Healed on the Sabbath

He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath day. Behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and she was bent over, and could in no way straighten herself up. When Jesus saw her, he called her, and said to her, "Woman, you are freed from your infirmity." He laid his hands on her, and immediately she stood up straight, and glorified God.
The ruler of the synagogue, being indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, said to the multitude, "There are six days in which men ought to work. Therefore come on those days and be healed, and not on the Sabbath day!"
Therefore the Lord answered him, "You hypocrites! Doesn't each one of you free his ox or his donkey from the stall on the Sabbath, and lead him away to water? Ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan had bound eighteen long years, be freed from this bondage on the Sabbath day?"
As he said these things, all his adversaries were disappointed, and all the multitude rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by him.
