Advent Devotional – Friday, December 30, 2016 – The Cure for What Ails You
23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. 24 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.
25 And there followed him great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and fromJerusalem, and from Judæa, and from beyond Jordan. – Matthew 4:23-25
Jesus has always been in the business of helping people, and He made it a point to help those afflicted with the most serious of illnesses. No affliction was too big: leprosy, blindness, paralysis – even demon possession – all covered under the grace of Christ.
People flocked from miles around to hear Jesus speak, not only because He healed the body, but because He healed the soul. People knew this kind of healing could only come from one Source – their Heavenly Father.
Fortunately for us, Jesus is still the Great Physician today. His healing hands never get tired. His prognosis is positive. Although hard to swallow at times, His prescription is still the best medicine for what ails my soul.
Have you consulted the Great Physician lately?
