sermonette: On the Mend
God's Remarkable Design for Our Healing
Joseph B. Baity
Given 23-Mar-19; Sermon #1479s; 17 minutes
As God has designed the marvelous healing process, undetected by the untrained eye, God has also designed spiritual healing through sanctification, requiring that faith, suffering, and healing be a part of the same process. As by Christ's broken body our diseases can be healed, so, by Christ's blood can His Body (the Church) be healed spiritually. As we approach the coming Passover, we, mindful that Christ is sensitive to our suffering, should augment our own sensitivities to the suffering of others in Christ's Body. Though we live in extremely traumatic times, we can be optimistic as we develop the faith of Christ, assuring us that we are already on the mend.
