Today, the Gospel tells that Jesus, our Healer and Physician, has come.
Jesus heard this and said to them [that], “Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do. I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.” — Mark 2:17
Yesterday, we thought we lost our precious baby. But, praise God that our little one is fine in the womb of my wife! In our time of sickness, desperation, and uncertainty, Jesus was our Physician and Healer. He saved our baby and gave us comfort amidst our despair and peace amidst the uncertainty. I believe He continues to heal us physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
The spiritually sick — the sinner, the lost, the desperate, the discouraged — also need a Physician. They need a Healer. They need Jesus.
And I believe the Gospel is calling us not only to witness to them for Jesus, but also to be like Jesus to them.
Like Jesus, we are called not to condemn, but to forgive. To love. To show compassion. To encourage. To give hope in Christ and in the Resurrection.
Like Jesus, we are called not to be proud, conceited, or self-righteous. But, to be merciful. To be understanding. To be meek and humble of heart.
We need healing. Other people need healing. The world needs Jesus. Let us strive not only to witness for Him, but to live like He did.
P.S. Please continue praying for our family, especially for our baby. Thank you.
