Healing

Teaching Series: Summer 2014

Sometimes I find it overwhelming. It seems that everywhere I look people are exhausted at just coping with whatever afflicts them. Bodies don’t work with the efficiency for which they were designed. Viruses and sicknesses are the topics of daily conversation. Hearts are heavy with worry or fears. Minds speak lies that crush and defeat. Visions of ourselves torment and oppress.

Is this the life to which we are called?

We know that God is raising up an army. We want to be in it. We want to fight the darkness, to usher in His Kingdom of light. But some days it’s all we can do just to stand. Maybe, not even stand. And fighting seems as far away as ever.

Jesus said of himself:

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.” Luke 4:18-19

This is what Jesus does. What he still does.
