THE GREAT PHYSICIAN HEALS US MANY WAYS
[Watch instead of reading, below!]
This week many of you have probably learned a new word-- "PHYSICIAN." When we talk about Jesus being "The Great Physician"--- that's a phrase that meant a "really, really Good Doctor." But what made Jesus great?
Maybe it's because he didn't have a specialty--- like a dentist or a eye-doctor? He could do it ALL.... Sick? Got it. Bleeding? Healed. Dead? No problem.
However, while that's all very true: Maybe the most important question to ask is "WHY he fixed people." During his time on earth Jesus healed people to show them love and so the world would know His power. However, he had another job. Each person he taught about God had the opportunity to be spiritually healed, too.
Tonight we're going to learn about 2 people--- a blind man and a Samaritan woman.
THE BLIND MAN was born blind; but, since they didn't know much about medicine, the people around him thought it might be a punishment for sin in his life or maybe something his parents had done "wrong." Jesus taught those around Him that it wasn't a sin problem... Instead it was an opportunity for Jesus to show his power and God's love.
THE SAMARITAN WOMAN appears to have been born healthy... but her problem was the opposite of the blind man's! She had made some mistakes in her life that had destroyed her friendships and her reputation. Jesus showed her love and taught her about God's power so that she could know the right way to live. By changing her life, Jesus healed her SOUL.
