Harry Oliver - Sidney, Manitoba Convention - November 5-10, 1914

John 5:6, “Wilt thou be made whole?”  The same question comes to us today as we gather together. 

We have lack of power to walk.  How simply Jesus spoke to that man, "Arise, take up thy bed and walk."  That is the hardest thing to do, to take up the thing that gives us ease and comfort.  We notice that in obedience to the words of Christ, he was able to rise and walk.  The way we can be made whole is by hearing His words and doing them. 

I have often lost very much by waiting for others.  The first time I gave my testimony, I realized I had nothing to say, but I was willing to make a fool of myself and as I had that purpose, I was conscious that God was with me.  Though we make mistakes, God will honour us because we did it because we wanted to obey Him.
