Why are we called Through the Roof Ministries?
The Bible tells a story of four men in Mark 2 who took a paralyzed man to Jesus. They couldn't get in the room because of the crowd, so they lowered him though the roof. It was the partnership between those with disabilities and able bodied people that made it possible for that man to meet Jesus. Through the Roof Ministries seeks to work in partnership with all people to make the Gospel accessible.
Some men came, bringing to him a paralytic, carried by four of them. Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, the made an opening in the roof above Jesus and, after digging through it, lowered the mat the paralyzed man was lying on. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Son, your sins are forgiven."
Now some teachers of the law were sitting there, thinking to themselves, "Why does this fellow talk like that? He's blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?" Immediately Jesus knew in his spirit that this was what they were thinking in their hearts, and he said to them, "Why are you thinking these things? Which is easier: to say to the paralytic, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Get up, take your mat and walk'? But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins..." He said to the paralytic, "I tell you, get up, take your mat, and go home." He got up, took his mat and walked out in full view of them all. This amazed everyone and they praised God, saying, "We have never seen anything like this!"
