Jesus And Health Care

jesus heals1

George Barna recently posted a challenging editorial entitled, “Jesus’ Health Care Plan“. He lists seven “noteworthy perspectives that underlie Jesus’ health care strategy”, taken primarily from the Gospel of Luke:

  1. Jesus healed people because He believed that good health matters.
  2. Jesus invested Himself in their healing because He loved and cared for people.
  3. Jesus healed everyone who presented a medical need because He saw no reason to screen some out as unqualified.
  4. Jesus healed every kind of illness He encountered.
  5. Jesus pursued them because He saw Himself as a servant.
  6. Jesus allowed them to disrupt His schedule because He realized that people’s pain and suffering was their top focus in life.
  7. Jesus expected His closest followers to heal others.

I highly recommend reading the entire article here.
