Heal Us All

Last week I heard so many sad true stories from friends and acquaintances, stories of illness, dying, death, addiction, broken relationships and difficult circumstances.  There was a thread running through and connecting all those stories, the brokenness, twistedness and hopelessness of our world and our very nature.   Things just aren’t right, not in the natural world, not in individuals, or in societies.  Even the best of our efforts cannot truly restore.  Only God can put it all right again because only He is truly good.  In His mercy He has done that in Christ Jesus.  He helps and heals those who trust Him today, and when Jesus comes again he will restore the entire world.   “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”  Jesus (John 10:10).
