I am rereading this book, watching as our kitchen is transformed from worn and broken to new and fully functional, and inspired by a friend who reminded us how God makes everything beautiful in time. In every area of life, we can’t fathom God, and yet we have these hints of what He wants to do here on earth. We get to be part of how He makes all things new.
In keeping with this, this coming Sunday morning, we’re going to use our Faith Gathering time to pray for healing for anyone who would like prayer. Jesus says that praying for people who need healing and seeing them healed is part of being a believer, so it seems like a wise investment of time to take God up on His fine offer :)
You’re welcome to join us if you’re new to this idea or this has been part of your faith for awhile; whether you’re looking for a new group to explore faith with or you have a wonderful church you’re already part of. Wherever you are, whoever you are, if you’d like prayer for Jesus to heal you, we’d love to pray for you this Sunday morning.
Praying for healing makes me think of the the 70s TV show, the Six Million Dollar Man: After Steve Austin, Astronaut, was left close to dead after a terrible accident, the man in charge did not give up on him. Instead, he said to the rest of the team: “Gentlemen, we can rebuild him! We have the technology. He will be the world’s first Bionic Man: Better. Stronger. Faster.”
That’s kind of what God says when He looks at us with our wounds and ailments: People, I can rebuild you! I have the technology! Here’s to believing that the promise of better/stronger/faster comes through grace and God’s love for us, and not just robotics.
If you think you might join us Sunday, email me and I’ll send directions.
And if you don’t live nearby, but would like to explore this idea of how God works in us and through us here on earth, I have a copy of my favorite book on the subject, Miracle Work, to give away! If you’re interested, drop a line in the comments here or on FB/Twitter to say that you’re ready to get to work. I’ll pick a winner at random later this week.
