Weekends Of Worship




At the heart of Christianity is mercy – having sympathy on others. Everywhere He went, Jesus showed compassion; He healed those who were in need: the paralytic, the leper, the man at Bethesda, the person with the withered hand, the centurion’s son, the widow’s son, Jairus’ daughter, the unclean woman, the blind man, the dumb man, the crowd on the mountain by the Sea of Galilee, the deaf man, the epileptic boy, and His dear friend Lazarus. In His humanity, Christ touched each one of them with His divinity.

How much more He does today, to heal us as He reaches down from the very throne of heaven, where He sits at the right hand of the Father. He gives us the Holy Spirit, the comforter. He grants us His peace and strength. He bequeaths His authority, and He offers constant prayers of intercession. He is moved by what we are going through, because He knows our frailties and weaknesses. He realizes our suffering, because He himself also suffered during His time on earth.

Even as we sit here, reading these words, Jesus is once again taking our pain upon Himself. He is holding our infirmities in His heart and hands, lifting them before the Father. As He has done so many times before, through thousands of years, and in millions of lives, He is proclaiming wholeness, and restoration in the name of the Father.

His great care and concern for us, will never cease. Nor will His compassion. Jesus loves us with everlasting affection, and He longs to intercede for us. He is always willing to take our troubles upon Himself, so we can be healed in His name, and for His glory.

Denise, when I read your words and came to the part where you reminded me that Jesus is still next to the Father interceding for me today, I just rejoiced in Him. I forget that you know. But He is there always interceding for me. What a comfort and blessing. Thank you for letting God use you today. Blessing to you, Dr. Bobbi

Yes, a great post. God has blessed us in so many ways, but I think the greatest blessing was when He sent His Son to the cross that we might have eteranal life and healing for our bodies.
Blessings, AE
