HOST: Michael Whitworth
And he came down with them and stood on a level place, with a great crowd of his disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. And those who were troubled with unclean spirits were cured. And all the crowd sought to touch him, for power came out from him and healed them all.
Jesus “healed them all.” Such a simple, matter-of-fact statement, yet consider the life-changing effect of those words for those who came into contact with the healing power of the Great Physician. The blind saw, the lame walked, the lepers were made clean, the possessed were freed from unclean spirits. With these healings came normalcy and quality of life. They could once again work, provide for their families, enjoy relationships, and take part in day-to-day activities. Their interaction with Jesus was absolutely life-changing! As amazing and effectual as these miracles must have been, Jesus offers us an even greater healing. If we are willing to bring Him our broken and sin-sick lives, He offers to heal us of the spiritually fatal disease that we all suffer from. With that healing comes renewal—renewal of our spiritual lives, and renewal of our relationship with God, renewal of our hope for eternal salvation. The healing that Jesus offers us is still absolutely life-changing!
How does spiritual healing change our lives?
Don’t forget to pray and have a great day!
