Jesus & the Enigma of Healing (Luke 5:12-26)

The stories of Luke 5 about different encounters with the sick. Some have said Jesus heals for his glory to be known. But the leper was told to keep it under his mat (if you will). And some say healing depends on the faith of the person seeking; but the lame man got a magic carpet ride on the faith of his friends. in verse 16 though, after the healing Jesus withdrew – sometimes is just not time to heal.

We should come to receive his words and his deeds—he wants to heal, and he wants to teach us, and yes, sometimes he withdraws. Maybe He’s praying more for your heart than your healing…
