Fragments – Sick, post 5

The Pharisees and their scribes grumbled at his disciples, “Why do you eat and drink with publicans and sinners?”

And Jesus answered them, “Those who are well have no need of the physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.” [Luke 5:30-31]

Any journey to health begins with coming to grips with your condition. The physician can heal, but only if we don’t pick at the wounds and re-injure the damaged tissues. We try to help the process along, and we renew the damage.

As Jesus is healing you, you have to let him heal you. Don’t try to fix things yourself. That’s what got you in the hole you’re in now. Doing things your way will never change what makes you do things your way.

I surrender to your healing hands. Jesus, do whatever it is you do to me and transform my sickness into health.
