Christ’s Healing Requires Our Spirits to be Cleansed

(Matthew 8:1-4)

Overseer Sung-Hyun Kim

is love.
loves the world because He wants to give
all things for the world’s sake (Jn 3:16).
God has no regrets and does not lack anything
(Acts 17:24-27).
He sent the only begotten Son (who He loved)
to the world because
He loved the world in the same way (1 Jn 1:1-4).
Though people in the world are sinners,
He gave His grace. Since He did not even spare His Son,
what else will He withhold?
God truly wants to give everything (Mt 20:28).
If you asked God what He wants,
He will say He wants you to be clean immediately (Mt 8:3).
Leprosy is an unfortunate sickness that defiles the flesh.
Similarly, sin defiles the spirit and is unfortunate,
but He unceasingly wants to cleanse it (Jn 6:53-55).
do not hesitate to ask God.
He prepared an answer for all humans
who are in Jesus (Mt 6:8).
Jesus is the answer to all kinds of wishes (Jn 14:13-14).

◎ Ask and it will be given, seek and you will find.
God already gave everything that He wanted to give.

◎ Just as a baby must drink his mother’s milk,
we should confess what we want regarding the spirit and body.
God wants to liberate us from sin and disease.

◎ The ministry of God’s salvation is what He wants.
We go to the Lord so we can please Him.
We go to God to accept His love.

※ Our faith is not about self-cultivation.
It is to be clean like God wants.
Let us receive His grace with gratitude.
