The Great Physician
February 18, 2011 • Matthew 8:1-16
During his earthly ministry, Jesus showed great sympathy for sick and suffering people. Many of the wonderful stories in the New Testament gospels are about his healing of lepers, his giving sight to the blind, his curing of insufferable diseases. If Christ had that much compassion on people while he lived on earth, can we still believe in his power to heal? What about when he doesn’t heal us like we think he should?
