    The Secret of Spiritual Healing

    The man could have stopped to doubt and lost his one chance of healing. But he believed Christ’s word, and in acting on it he received strength. Through the same faith we may receive spiritual healing. Sin has cut us off from the life of God and crippled us. By ourselves we are no more capable of living a holy life than the sick man was capable of walking. Many who realize their helplessness and long for spiritual life are trying in vain to obtain it. The Savior is bending over these discouraged, struggling ones, saying, “Do you want to be made well?”HH 87.2

    Do not wait to feel whole. Believe His word, and put your will on the side of Christ. In acting on His word, you will receive strength. Whatever may be the evil that binds both soul and body, Christ is able to deliver. He will give life to the person that is “dead in trespasses.” Ephesians 2:1.HH 87.3

    The restored paralytic bent down to pick up his rug and blanket, and when he straightened up, he looked around for his Deliverer. But Jesus was lost in the crowd. As he hurried on his way with firm, free step, rejoicing in his newfound strength, he told several of the Pharisees of his cure. He was surprised at the coldness with which they listened.HH 87.4

    They interrupted him, asking why he was carrying his bed on the Lord’s Day. In his joy, the man had forgotten it was the Sabbath. He answered boldly, “He who made me well said to me, ‘Take up your bed and walk.’” They asked who had done this, but he could not tell. These rulers wanted direct proof so that they could condemn Jesus as a Sabbath breaker. He had not only broken the law in healing the sick man on the Sabbath, but had committed a serious evil by telling him to carry his bed away.HH 87.5
