Heal the Sick

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. – Jeremiah 29:13

Health is a big issue.

Here a great number of disabled people used to lie–the blind, the lame, the paralyzed.
John 5:3

Jesus often brought incredible moments of healing.

When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick.
Matthew 14:14

Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick you your mat and walk.” At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked.
Matthew 28:19-20a

Jesus’ followers are to continue to bring healing.

Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.
Matthew 10:8

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Matthew 28:19-20
