Do you want to be healed?
One day, Jesus engaged an invalid at the pool of Siloam. He asked him if he wanted to be healed. That seems like a silly question. Who would not want to be healed? Jesus’ question becomes pointed when he tells the man to get up and walk. Leaving any other ideas about how to get healed behind, the man had to trust Jesus. And he did! The ministry of Soul Care is about helping people find healing for their souls. I am excited to look at how to find healing through a surprising means of grace in Hebrews 12:12-17. But take warning! You are going to have to decide. Do you want to be healed, and will you trust Jesus?

Healing is found in life’s trials.
Christianity is not about how to escape from the difficulties of life - it is about how to face the difficulties of life.
Healing is found in weakness.
Healing is found in our choices.

1 Kings 18:21
“Profane” — not in the abuse of language but, rather, against God (pro is before or against; fanus is temple). It means against the temple; godless. Esau despised his birthright, counting it only worth a pittance.
Dr. J. Vernon McGee
Healing is found in Jesus.
