Jesus & Healing

Tonight at Church there was a Bible Study on The Cross and Healing. I don’t really want to make this a huge blog post… but here’s something to think about.

If we have faith in a risen and living Jesus, who the Bible talks about as never changing, all powerful and describes as The Great Physician, then why do we find it hard sometimes to believe that God can heal.

I believe that we should ask God to heal people. It’s true that some people who are prayed over for healing aren’t healed… but that’s all part of the Kingdom now and not yet (If you want to know more about this, then please comment on this post). But what I’m saying is… we need to have faith! I need to have faith.

God can heal. The crux of the matter is this… if Jesus can heal us spiritually by getting rid of our guilt upon that cross and make us right with the Father… then he can do anything. That means physical/mental/emotional illness too.
