On Healing

I had the opportunity to attend LifePoint this last Sunday, as Pastor Brent Kimball delivered the sermon from John 5. It was an excellent message. There was one point in his exposition of John 5 that I particularly loved, and it had to do with his teaching on healing from this passage. If you’re unfamiliar with John 5, it is the story of Jesus saving and healing the man at the pool of Bethesda, a man who had been an invalid for 38 years. A biblical view of healing is vital for the church today. It seems that two extremes exist: either we don’t believe in it or pray for it (contrary to Scripture’s teaching) or we presumptuously “claim” it, demanding it with a spirit of entitlement, an attitude that is also contrary to the Bible’s perspective. I thought Brent’s words here were pastoral, appropriate, faith-building, and biblical.
