Why did Jesus Heal so many People?
To get Attention
To prove he could forgive sin
To prove he was God
To show His compassion
To show that He is the Lord of all of Life
To show that salvation starts now
Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
James 5:14-16 (NIV)
