Sunday 17 Nov – Healing

Today’s service included prayer time specifically for healing, and in preparation for this Rachel and Jonathan spoke to us about three healing episodes from the New Testament. In the first story, taken from John’s gospel (Ch 5:2-15) Jesus asked a man who has been paralysed for 38 years, “Do you want to get well?”. This is a significant question, because it exposes the way in which we can become wedded to our infirmities – whatever those might be – so that in fact we are reluctant to face the changes that might be required by our healing. The second passage looked at the faith of the Roman centurion requesting Jesus’ healing for his servant (Luke 7:1-10), while the third was taken from Acts (3:1-10).
