-Roy Lessin, Jesus Name Above All Names
When the Pharisees saw it, they said to His disciples, "Why does your Teacher eat with the tax collectors and sinners?" When Jesus heard that, He said to them, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick." -Matthew 9:11-12 NKJV
Jesus is like no other physician you will ever visit. As your Great Physician, Jesus examines you and then prescribes Himself as the way to get well. He is the best thing that could ever happen to your body, your soul, your mind, and your emotions. He can bring healing to every area of your life that needs to be made whole.
As your Physician, Jesus has faced every form of heartache and human emotion. He was a man who was despised and knows how to heal the pain of disesteem. He was rejected and knows how to comfort those who have been ignored. He was a man of sorrows and knows how to lift your heavy burden.
Jesus experienced utter pain and knows how to touch every hurt within your heart. He was acquainted with grief and knows how to calm the storm of anxiety and calamity. He bore your sicknesses, distresses, and weaknesses, and knows how to turn your ashes into beauty and your mourning into joy.
As you come to Jesus, your Great Physician, bring Him the burdens you carry, the pain you feel, or the hurts that have wounded you. Allow His healing balm to pour over you—to soothe, to calm, and to comfort. Receive from Him the tender ministry of His restoring hands.
