You probably know someone like this: no matter how sick they obviously are, they won’t see at doctor, take a pill or even sit still for a bit. “I’ve just gotta get through this and I’ll be alright.”

On hearing this, Jesus said to them, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

Mark 2:17

The disease of sin is one we can’t rest our way well out of, no pill can ease. But there is a miraculous great physician, Jesus, who can heal sin and the scars that come with it. Don’t work yourself to death fighting through the symptoms. Get the cure!

But it doesn’t stop there. Every one who gets better from a sickness has an opportunity to recommend that same relief to other sufferers. Why? Not because they’ve never been sick a day. No. It’s because they had just as bad a case and they know how good it feels to be healthy!
