The Deep End just keeps getting deeper. Things have really picked up during the second half of this year, and another milestone for all-time views was surpassed a couple of days ago. If you are a subscriber or a regular reader: Thank you. I am always surprised (and absurdly pleased) when someone is helped by one of the posts on this site, and I am grateful to God that He has allowed me to continue blogging. Any fruit that is produced is His fruit, and abounds to His glory.

In honor of this momentous occasion, and with many of my friends battling colds, flu, and even pneumonia at this time of the year, I thought it would be a good time to re-set the category called Biblical Doctoring, which started off with a series of posts under the acrostic D.O.C.T.O.R.

And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Luke 5:31-32

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.
