Jesus left there and went along the Sea of Galilee. Then he went up on a mountainside and sat down. Great crowds came to him, bringing the lame, the blind, the crippled, the mute and many others, and laid them at his feet; and he healed them. The people were amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the crippled made well, the lame walking and the blind seeing. And they praised the God of Israel. Matthew 15:29-31 NIV
After reading this passage, might some of us not be tempted to think that it was great that Jesus healed all these people, but, what has He done for me? Why has He not healed me of my ailments? To me, this would be a very short-sighted attitude.
Remember that Jesus paid the cost for each of our salvation. The cost was much too dear for any of us to pay it, yet Jesus paid that cost for all mankind. Is this not more important that any physical healing which we might not receive?
Jesus loves us with a love that exceeds that which we could possibly imagine. Until we can be with Him in our eternal dwelling place, I don’t believe we can fully realize the depth of His love for us.
Jesus has promised to provide what is needed to each of us. He asks for our love and obedience to Him in return.
Don’t allow yourself to become short-sighted as to all the Lord has provided to you. It goes far beyond any physical healing.
