This Sickness Affects Everyone

July 31, 2021

“…Jesus said, ‘It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: I desire mercy, not sacrifice. For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.'” – Matthew 9:12-13

Medical research is an ongoing, ever-challenging process, filled with endless peaks and valleys of success and failure. We definitely live in an age of exciting medical breakthroughs. Scientists are learning more every day about cancer, heart disease, and other life threatening illnesses. Soon, there may be cures for many of the diseases which cause so much suffering.

But, there is a sickness which affects every person who ever lived and causes untold suffering and misery. It leads not only to physical death,but to spiritual death – eternal separation from God. This sickness is called sin. And it only has one cure.

Over 2,000 years ago, the cure for this disease was revealed. Jesus Christ, through His perfect life and sacrificial death, brought to mankind the cure for the ultimately fatal disease of sin. By accepting His free gift of a cure, not only are you spared the terrible eternal consequences, but you can begin to enjoy life today.

Why not turn to Jesus, the Great Physician, and enjoy good spiritual health now and always?
