“Jesus returned to the Sea of Galilee and climbed a hill and sat down. A vast crowd brought to Him people who were lame, blind, crippled, those who couldn’t speak, and many others. They laid them before Jesus, and He healed them all. The crowd was amazed! Those who hadn’t been able to speak were talking, the crippled were made well, the lame were walking and the blind could see again! And they praised the God of Israel.”
We worship the same Jesus that we read about in the Bible. He hasn’t changed. He is still the same compassionate healer as we read about in today’s passage. Moreover, when Matthew makes mention that Jesus healed ‘all’ who were brought to Him, he is showing that no sickness or illness was too much for Jesus to heal. He healed them all! And He still makes the blind see, the crippled well and the lame to walk again today as well! Yet even more than our physical healing, Jesus saves our souls too.
Let us rejoice today that firstly, Jesus is a Healer. He can heal our sickness no matter how great. Secondly, and more importantly, Jesus heals our souls. He cleanses us from all unrighteousness and leads us into life everlasting.
Let us rejoice that Jesus is our healer. He is the source of our healing, both physically and spiritually. If you need physical or spiritual healing then just call out to Jesus in faith and trust that His healing will make you whole. There is no sickness too great, nor any amount of bad news too overwhelming for Jesus. Trust His healing. He is our HEALER!
