The hospital represents a place of healing. If you are sick or have a disease, you can go there to seek the advice of the medical professionals who’ve trained to administer therapies to bring you back to health. If you leave before the process is complete, you can expect that you will have to return because your condition could become worse, especially if your situation has the possibility of leading to fatality.
The same is true for our walk with Jesus. If you go to him, accept his salvation, and then return to life as usual, you’ve not completed the process; in fact, you’ve barely scratched the surface. Jesus is a healer of souls; a life lived in him is part of a daily regiment and is not a one-time event; it’s a process. Returning to life as usual is like leaving the hospital before they’ve administered their healing services. Our healing will not be complete until he returns to gather us to himself. Trusting in Jesus is life-altering, and it makes us desire to engage with him daily because our healing is ongoing. Have a conversation with Jesus today; you’ll be amazed at how much better you will feel; he’s the doctor; tell him about all of your ailments, issues of your heart, or problems with your health. Focus on him, and you will receive complete healing.
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. For behold, those who are far from you shall perish; you put an end to everyone who is unfaithful to you. But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, that I may tell of all your works. Psalms 73:26-28
