When Jesus heard this, he told them, “It is not those who are well who need a doctor, but those who are sick. I didn’t come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
When we go see the doctor for some illness or a routine checkup, he only sees the visible part of us and tries to determine if that physical / visible part is functioning properly and that all the parts are working correctly. Hopefully they are. The younger the body is, the better chance it has of being correct. As we age we have the wearing out of parts and the functioning of our bodies begin to deteriorate. Now, these laws of decay and deterioration apply to everything in God’s creation. This is the truth God spoke in the beginning that meant, “If you break my rule of what tree you may eat from, you shall surely die.” We all know the story of the lie that Satan used to deceive Adam and Eve and we are still under that law of deterioration and finally death. Satan lied to the world and continues to lie today, Jesus said that he (Satan) is the father of all lies and presently he is the ruler of this world. Meanwhile, back in the doctor’s office. Doctors take x-rays and MRI’s and PET scans of different parts of the body to see what is going on with the physical parts, but he is not able to see the real you. They can take pictures of your brain but can’t see your mind. Your mind and thoughts are invisible. They can take pictures of the body and inside the body but can’t see the spirit and your soul. Doctors today receive a license to Practice Medicine. Can I tell you, that God does not practice Medicine, He is the medicine? Not only for the body but the soul also. Rejoice in the fact that God is the Great Physician.
