Fall Preaching - Life Hurts, God Heals

Life Hurts God Heals.png

The church should pray for healing today. Why? Because the New Testament teaches that the Spirit gives this gift (and others) to the church (1 Cor. 12:8–11) and instructs us to desire to exercise it (1 Cor. 14:1). God answers prayers for healing when it is in accordance with his sovereign will (Hebrews 2:4).

When God gives a gift of healing, it is always intended to glorify Jesus Christ and point us to believe in Him. None of us has authority to heal a body, only the Creator does (Acts 3:12–13). That’s why we always pray in Jesus’s name. And when God heals someone, he does it for the common good of the church and as a witness to the world.

But, how much do we really know about healing?

Come and worship with us this Fall, and discover what it means to invite healing into your life, family, marriage, community and church!
