The Sick Need A Physician

Sick need a physician picture

But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick” (Matthew 9:12). Jesus said this in response to the question by the Pharisees asking why Jesus eats with publicans and sinners. His implication is that He is called to go to publicans and sinners because they need Him. It’s also interesting to note that Jesus said the sick need a physician. There are groups who don’t believe in doctors or medicine. They would rather let their child die. Of course, Jesus is the Great Physician and healer. Jesus is not endorsing any particular doctor, but makes it clear that sick people need to go to a doctor. My suggestion is that you first go to Jesus the healer. And Jesus often heals through doctors. We should never condemn someone for going to a doctor or taking medicine. First, there is no condemnation for a believer; and second, healing is by grace through faith. We all are not at the same level of trust for health. When you receive your healing regardless of what facilitated it, such as an antibiotic, thank the Lord for the healing He provided.
