What can we do?

“Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages,
teaching in their synagogues,
preaching the gospel of the kingdom,
and healing every sickness and every disease
among the people.”
(Matthew 9:35)

This is what Jesus DID

Jesus is the Son of God
He is also the Son of Man

Now read the next chapter…

“And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him,
He gave them power over unclean spirits,
to cast them out,
and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.”
(Matthew 10:1)


“Heal the sick,
cleanse the lepers,
raise the dead,
cast out demons.
Freely you have received, freely give.”
(Matthew 10:8)

Jesus told the Disciples to DO
Exactly the same as what He had done

Now it hurts me to have to write this…
As I can already hear the voices speaking…
And saying silly things like…
“BUT they were the Disciples!”

Here again we have this wrong attitude:
“Jesus was SPECIAL”
“The Disciples were SPECIAL”
“WE are NOT!”

If Jesus can do it – we can do it
If the Disciples could do it – we can do it

The REAL question is or should be:
“WHY are we NOT doing it?”

And maybe I’m being a bit harsh…
Perhaps you are healing the sick
Cleansing lepers
Raising the dead
Casting out demons

Because I am
And I am sure that I am NOT the only one
Who is doing the same as Jesus did
And doing the same as the Disciples did
