We pray for the healing of our bodies and trust God acts. But what do we do when there is no hope of complete recovery?
Still, healing is so much more. Healing of our relationships, healing of our community, healing of our nation.
When Jesus cleanses the Temple he is calling out an unjust and unhealthy system. he is crying out for healing.
When the student who survived the mass killing at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School cry out for changes to our laws about guns they are calling for a cleansing of the temple of our nation. Those “meddlesome kids” are crying out for the healing of our nation.
In the end all healing in this life will be incomplete. So we trust in the one who has gone to the cross before us and who walks with us throughout this life.
