Heal the sick!

Healing by the power of God is still a topic full of questions, challenges and discussions. Last week I read a short article by a pastor who based his entire theology on healing on an experience from several years ago. Two sisters were sick, one was healed after prayer and the other died, and from that all conclusions were drawn about the will of God and how healing works. I call it ‘experiential theology’, where you elevate experience above the word of God. I realize that the assignment ‘Heal the sick’ is quite a challenge. But it is Jesus who tells his disciples to do it. He doesn’t make it exciting or complicated and appreciates people who are simple and sometimes brutal in their faith. Despite a number of questions that I don’t know the answers to, I want to go for the promise that Jesus has all power in heaven and on earth and is with me every day. And carry out the command he gives me as a disciple: ‘Heal the sick’. And healing is not a byproduct, some kind of option to the gospel. As if you can put together your own happy meal, with or without. Healing was dearly paid for, for by His stripes we are healed. Healing is part of God’s recovery plan. Let your will be done, just as it is in heaven. There is no sickness in heaven and eventually there will be no more sickness. And until that day, I want to learn to trust God (better), also when it comes to healing. Even when it hurts, because of unanswered prayers, disappointed people and sleepless nights. Jesus suffered more and invites us to share what we paid so dearly for.
