Salvation Healing

All of us who’ve come to the end of ourselves and turned to God for rescue and relief are familiar with this verse.

For God so loved that world, that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
John 3:16*

We crawled or stepped or leapt into the life Jesus came to grant us, most likely with a zeal that surprised others as well as ourselves. But over time, the sameness of the routine, the consistent responses to our efforts or (dare I say it?) the constant repetition of the salvation message somehow drained our enthusiasm. Or … far worse … redirected us to never-ending rounds of strategies, programs, and (another risky word) missions that sidetrack us into a distracted existence.

If that’s you … if you surrendered your humble heart to the Most High God, but find yourself wondering why fulfillment and joy somehow keep escaping your grasp. Good news awaits. There’s a stretch of road that’s an essential, but often overlooked inset on the pilgrim map.

Christ healed the blind, the disheartened, the greedy, the misguided, the deranged … cripples, lepers, adulterers, liars, thieves when He walked the earth. He even raised the dead. He was declaring His identity as He accomplished the tasks set for Him. And when He returned to His heavenly throne, He carried that healing assignment with Him.

But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings.
Malachi 4:2

On our journey to recover our design and realize our purpose, we need healing of the deepest kind in order to reach our full potential. Thankfully, the One who created us is ready, willing, even anxious, to respond to our petitions and grant us health

O LORD my God,
I cried to You for help, and You healed me.
O LORD, You have brought up my soul from Sheol;
You have kept me alive, that I would not go down to the pit.

You have turned me from my mourning into dancing;
You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness,
That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent.
O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
Psalm 30:1-2, 11-12

Let’s rejoice together over the extent of Christ’s compassion.
How will you pause and take advantage of Christ’s healing?

with confidence in His grace,
