Love... Is Healing
Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.
Mark 2:17 (NKJV)
By His wounds you were healed.
1 Peter 2:24 (NASB)
Jesus is a miraculous Healer. As a Man, healing was a large part of His ministry
Usually, He healed up close by the power of His Hand or Word. Sometimes, He healed at a distance by the power of the Spirit.
He healed large numbers of people who traveled to see Him. But He also made house calls. Once, He traveled by boat to heal a naked lunatic.
Then and now, healing followed a heart examination. Because godly healing requires a faithful heart. Neither cars nor people can run on a weak engine.
What can help a worried or wounded heart? Love.
Surely, love is the heart's best medicine. It's the spoonful of sugar in Mary Poppins. Love helps a wounded heart hope. Hope invites faith. Faith invites healing.
Therefore, we love.
