Week 21

Jesus Our healer

When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them,

“They that are whole have no need of the physician,

but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous,

but sinners to repentance.”

- Mark 2:17

During the days when Jesus was still on earth, some of the scribes and pharisees ask him why he was eating with sinners. They wondered to themselves the reason of Jesus spending time with people like tax collectors and those that are dislike by the society. When he was still walking here on Earth, he did not walk away to those who was lost. He did not close his door for those who haven’t known the goodness of the Lord. He did not say to them to not see him and simply have no connection with him but he sincerely made ways to reach out for them. To the many who wasn’t in the light, he did not turn his back.

In the story, he said to the pharisees and scribes that were with him about this the words, “They that are whole have no need of the physician but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” When someone is sick, we call the doctor. We wait for him to come or we simply go to the hospital for him to check what’s wrong with the person in the not so good condition. He is the one whom we look forward to that we may be healed and be able to live our lives healthy again. Through his many equipments and the knowledge he has of the disease, he bring back to normal his patients whom he has concern with. He has a duty and it is to make the sickness go away.

The sinners whom Jesus ate with was sick. They needed help. They were in a predicament and only he was able to clear out the speculations they were going through. The sickness they had was not one by which can be caught by the weather or environment. It wasn’t like those by which normal doctors can cure. it isn’t like the diseases by which can be identified by one’s appearance transparently.

They were sick spiritually. The ailment they had was something they have been with. Their spirit was in a situation where they needed Jesus. They maybe healthy outside but inside doesn’t match it so. They may look just right by assumptions but it isn’t so looking beneath and even deeper. Strong bodies was what they had but their spirit being weak overwhelms it in the later and major part of their lives.

When you are sick, you cannot do the things you love to do. You cannot go to places you enjoy of spending your time with. Unavailability is a word that mostly describes you. You become tightly limited s there is a hindrance to those things that makes you happy. It’s the sickness that stands in the way. Moments you should have been spending with loved ones are seized. Quality times with the person you cared most about are not in your good choices. And so, being healthy is something that makes way for these stuffs to come into your life.

Jesus knew of this sickness and he was the doctor they needed. He was the healer for those whose sins made them sick. He brings back the pale spirits to life. To those who knew not the love of the Lord, he walked with them to be able to show what a wonderful God we have. He wanted them to turn from their sins and live a life in accordance with the Lord. In the same way, we ought to aid the people who are healthy physically but weak spiritually. We got to bring them to a condition where their lives can be a testimony and an example for the many in need of healing. To be well inside is far better than to be just strong outside. One who is alive in the Lord has these two aspects in good shape.
