HOST: Michael Whitworth
And as Jesus passed on from there, two blind men followed him, crying aloud, “Have mercy on us, Son of David.” When he entered the house, the blind men came to him, and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to him, “Yes, Lord.” Then he touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith be it done to you.” And their eyes were opened. And Jesus sternly warned them, “See that no one knows about it.” But they went away and spread his fame through all that district. As they were going away, behold, a demon-oppressed man who was mute was brought to him. And when the demon had been cast out, the mute man spoke. And the crowds marveled, saying, “Never was anything like this seen in Israel.” But the Pharisees said, “He casts out demons by the prince of demons.”
It is no wonder that people constantly came to Jesus, pleading with Him to heal them of their afflictions. The blind, the mute, the lame, the demon-possessed—they all needed healing that had never been available to them before and was not available through any other source. Jesus alone offered them hope. Why wouldn't they come to Him? Any of us would most likely have done the same, right? Well, have you considered that we all suffer from a terrible and fatal disease? It is an epidemic that afflicts all of mankind, and there is no treatment or cure other than that offered by Jesus. The disease is sin, and Jesus is our only hope. He still offers healing, the type of healing that we desperately need but cannot find anywhere else. The question is: do we desire the healing that He offers, and are we willing to come to Him to find it?
Why do you think so many do not come to Jesus for spiritual healing?
Don’t forget to pray and have a great day!
