Jesus’ main purpose in coming to earth is to reconcile man with God. True reconciliation between us and God brings spiritual and emotional healing, and sometimes even physical healing. In the course of Jesus’ ministry on earth, He did many miraculous physical healings.
Here are some of the stories in the Bible that demonstrate Jesus’ power to heal.
Curing Diseases of Men
“Jesus went to every town and village. He taught in their meeting places and preached the good news about God’s kingdom. Jesus also healed every kind of disease and sickness.”
Ten Men with Leprosy
“As he was going into a village, ten men with leprosy came toward him. They stood at a distance and shouted, ‘Jesus, Master, have pity on us!’ Jesus looked at them and said, ‘Go show yourselves to the priests.’ On their way, they were healed. When one of them discovered he was healed, he came back, shouting praises to God. He bowed down at the feet of Jesus and thanked him.”
Remember that all challenges, like sickness and disease, are just another opportunity for us to draw nearer to Him — to know Him better and to experience the healing power of Jesus that no one else can bring. Let us believe and have faith in Jesus. Pray without ceasing and let God take over everything. He will take away our worries and turn them into peace. All we need to do is to let Jesus do it and believe that He can.
James 5:14 Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord.
Jesus continues to heal today as He did 2,000 years ago, at His own time, in His own way. Let us ask Him for healing (physically, emotionally and spiritually). Let’s start praying for it and let the power of God dwell in us!
