There’s a healer in the house

Recommended reading: Mark 2 vs 1-12

Mark tells the story of a paralytic who heard Jesus was in town. His four friends grabbed him and headed to see the healer. When they arrived, the crowd was so large they could not get close to Jesus, so they lowered him through the roof. Jesus managed to upset some religious leaders when He told him his sins were forgiven, then he healed the paralytic.

And that’s what I want to look at, the healer in the house. I think sometimes we can forget we have a healing God, but as I read through the gospels I see that they spend an inordinate amount of time talking about the healing ministry of Jesus.

Why do you think that is?

John finishes his gospel with this explanation.

“And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.” John 20:30 -31 (NKJV)

The God we serve is a miracle working God.

Ponder that as we start down the road of 2017, there is a healer in the house…

Do you need a miracle? There is a healer in the house.

Whether its physical, financial, marital, social, emotional, whatever your need… there is a healer in the house.

There is a healer in the house, but you don’t have to ask “what house?”

There is a healer in the house, you don’t have to ask “what time will he be there?”

Jesus isn’t limited to a geographic location as he was in Biblical times. He is not bound by time.

We don’t need to ask what house. We don’t need to follow Him from town to town to try and catch a glimpse of Him. We don’t need to touch the hem of His garment and risk a good old fashioned trampling. We don’t need to climb a roof.

The healer is here, with us, for each and every one that calls on Him.

He is the Word made flesh.

Romans 10 says

8 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): 9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

I have the best counsellor, the best healer ever, a mighty God, a Prince of Peace, an everlasting Father… and He is available to me today.
