Today we start a new message series called “Jesus Our Healer.” We’re going to talking about the topic of healing. Sickness is a universal need. Everyone is sick from time to time and we all know others who are battling various kinds of illnesses. The latest figures show that 18% of all expenditures in the United States are spent on healthcare, $2.7 trillion dollars worth. So as much a blessing as modern medicine is, it certainly has not eliminated sickness and disease.
People have all kinds of opinions about healing, but in this series, we’re going to using the Bible as our guide to the topic.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NIV) All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
