The Great Physician

And hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick; I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” Mark 2:17

The Pharisees seen Jesus eating with sinners and rebuked him! Now lets stop to think about this for a minute, who is a Sinner? We are all Sinners (Romans 3:23, Romans 3:9, Ecclesiastes 7:20) So if Jesus was to follow the Pharisees logic then he wouldn’t bother talking to anyone including the Pharisees.

Jesus here is making a statement that deals with the physical and spiritual realms. First hes talking about the sick who need a physical healing and then hes talking about sinners who need a spiritual rebirth (become saved)

See Jesus didn’t come to give us a temporary fix, he came to give us the permanent cure which is eternal life through him. Even if Christ were to fully restore our health, if we are not saved, then we are still condemned to eternal death due to the wages of our sins.

The Pharisees thought by doing religious works they could earn salvation, but Jesus called them “Whitewashed Tombs” why? Because on the outside they looked good but internally they were evil and corrupt. The love of God was not in them, only self righteousness

Jesus is the only way to get the permanent cure. The price he paid on the cross has given us eternal life. Repent and Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ , The Great Physician Amen!

Permanent Cure

And Jesus seeing their faith said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Mark 2:5

A paralyzed man heard that the Messiah , Jesus Christ , was coming to his town. He had faith and knew Jesus was the Son of God. So he had a couple of men carry him to the home where Jesus was preaching at. When they got there the home was so packed with people, they couldn’t even get to the front door.

So this mans faith and determination led them to carry him to the top of the house and lower him through the roof. Jesus saw his faith and said something strange, Your Sins Are Forgiven!

What could this possibly mean? Did this man sin cause his physical disability? No , Jesus came to give us the Permanent Cure not a temporary fix. Not only did Jesus heal the man, but he gave him Eternal Life!

Why does this man speak that way? He is blaspheming; who can forgive sins but God alone Mark 2:7

The religious leaders are outraged! Who does this man think he is? Only God can forgive sin! This is exactly what Jesus was revealing to everyone! If God can only forgive Sin and Jesus forgave Sin, its an easy conclusion to come to

“Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven’; or to say, ‘Get up, and pick up your pallet and walk ‘? Mark 2:9

Which do you prefer Jesus to say? You are Healed or Your Sins are Forgiven? Jesus has the power and authority to do both. Jesus not only provided this man with a temporary fix of healing but he gave him the permanent cure of eternal life by atonement for his sins!

Call Upon The Great Physician, Jesus Christ, to give you the Permanent  Cure Amen!

Be Cleansed

Moved with compassion, Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Mark 1:41

Heres a story of a man with leprosy, a skin disease that causes physical deformation. During the First Century Jewish culture, people who were disabled or physically ill were considered “Cursed by God’ and banished from society. This man is an outcast, but hes seeking the One who set the captives Free

He finds Jesus and begs to him “If you are willing, You can make me Clean”. Why is this man pursuing Jesus? Why is he on his knees? Because he knows Jesus is the Messiah (Christ), he has faith that Jesus can heal him

Jesus was moved with compassion, Jesus cares about us and knows what we are feeling. Jesus, the Son of God, became human to die for our sins. He knows our pain and suffering, he knows the fear and anxiety you feel.

and He said to him, “See that you say nothing to anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.” Mark 1:44

After Jesus healed the man with leprosy, he told him to go tell the high priests as a testimony. What is your testimony? What did Jesus heal you from? Did you tell anyone? Our testimonies are the greatest evidence of the gospel of Christ!

Jesus is willing to make you clean, come to him and ask for forgiveness in Jesus Name Amen!
