The Doctor Who Never Fails

Doctors often take the majority of the credit for healing a patient. However, all physical healings are, at best, temporary. Earthly doctors, being human, are susceptible to mistakes. A patient may need a second opinion. A patient who has been proclaimed “healed” may suffer a relapse. But when you have been healed from the fatal illness of sin by the Great Physician, you have been fully and permanently healed.

When the Lord Jesus, the Great Physician, saves someone, it is by grace through faith, not of works (Ephesians 2:8-9). If you have been healed from the sickness of sin, you were not healed by works, so you should not trust in works to keep you healed.

The Holy Ghost spoke to the Galatian believers through the Apostle Paul:

This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain. He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

Galatians 3:2-5

An earthly physician offers a temporary cure, but the Great Physician has the power to keep you healed, and to make you GROW.

  1. When we are saved (healed) from sin, it is eternal! What a great hope that is! I am praying for healing now from stage 4 cancer, but I know that regardless of what happens to my physical body – my soul is eternal! Great post.

  2. Hey, Lori. Thanks for the comment. Thanks especially for your faith and attitude during your trial. I, too, pray that God will heal you. I have been doing a study lately on the “eternality?” (Is that a word?) of Christ’s salvation: on the eternal nature of the salvation we have in Christ. I may post some of those lessons.
