Healing...it's all about Love

In recent healing services, I've been moved to contemplate upon the courage of those who come. I've also been moved to understand that it is all about the love of those laying hands upon those who come for healing. It is, indeed, all about love.

We sometimes forget that God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son that the world may be delivered from sin. It is in embracing that love, in a healing worship, that God manifests Himself. In that moment, God heals. Period.

A healing service that is based upon any particular individual's gift is erroneous. Rather, if it is based upon the love of Our Lord, through anyone there, then God's love is present and radiant. It's all about love.

Love. What a notion. Love for another, in the name of Jesus Christ, is all that one needs. Miracles happen, in the name of Jesus Christ. Period.

Brother Marty, thanks for the encouraging post. I've never really been close to my aunt and I am amazed at how hard this is hitting me. I think if I let myself, I could cry for an hour. There is something in my spirit that just cries "This isn't right!" But you're right: it's all about love. Healing, prayer, the Christian life, it's all about God's love for others and that love being poured forth through us. Thanks again.

Shane, Kendra, thank you for the kind words. I'm increasingly finding love as the fundamental message God wants us to embrace. It's so simple yet we sometimes make it so hard.
