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

But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.

Matthew 9:12

Have you been healed from the sickness of sin by the Great Physician? Only Jesus Christ provides the cure for sin.

Before the days of modern transportation, a person who had been successfully treated by an innovative doctor would sometimes physically change his residence, and move to the place where the doctor was located. This was so he could be near for regular examinations.

Jesus invites us to “abide” in Him. (John 15:4) If we do so, He will be able to continually “examine” us, letting us know if there are signs of our old sin-sickness creeping back in to make us ill. Regular check-ups, conducted by the Holy Spirit, are a key part of good spiritual health.

Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Psalm 139:23-24
