What do Jesus’ healing miracles have to do with us today?

 

Many of us are wounded in some way—or know someone who is. Although not necessarily physically blind, deaf, or crippled, we might find ourselves blinded by denial or deaf to truths we don’t want to hear. How many of us are crippled by depression, anxiety, or any number of challenges not apparent to apparent to the naked eye. Wholeness involves so much more than the absence of physical problems. Jesus invited those he encountered to become well not only in body, but also in mind and spirit. His healing power was as varied as the people seeking it. That same power speaks to all of us who are willing to trust him with our brokenness and have our eyes, ears, minds, and hearts opened by the healing love he offers.

Meditations

But Jesus answered “The scripture says, ‘Human beings cannot live on bread alone, but need every word that God speaks.’” (Matthew 4:4)

 

All Bible quotes are from the Good News Translation unless otherwise noted.

 

It is reassuring that Jesus called fishermen and tax collectors to be his followers. These were laymen, not Scripture experts. It is wise to seek guidance from religious scholars and clergy who have studied Scripture to avoid errors in interpretation. But the Bible is also a gift given to each of us, to use as a basis for prayer and meditation.

 

I’m not a Biblical scholar; I’m an expert only on my own experience. Following the Scripture passage is a brief meditation along with a question or two as a springboard for your own reflections.
