Luke 7:22 So he replied to the messengers, “Go back and report to John what you have seen and heard: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor.
So, what happened? Even as the Church grew and expanded, as with all things us human critters get our hands on, the initial zeal, the initial focus turned to matters more political and the ingathering of people, power and wealth transformed the Church into what we see today. Enormous organizations with little zeal or little awareness and less care for the mission Jesus left us with than as if the Church had never existed.
But wait, don’t go away disappointed. “God is still on the throne, and He does remember His own”. (Kitty Suffield) This truth, while perhaps difficult to grasp is what brings me to this point. As I find it harder and harder to even walk, I wonder whether Jesus will lead me through this time of pain and confusion, or whether He has a purpose in bringing out a more persistent and positive “living hope”. (1 Peter 1:3) So, whether my healing is temporal or eternal, in all things I will give Him my praise and thanks for His loving kindness.
