Forgiveness & Healing
…who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases…
– Psalm 103:3
All through the Bible, forgiveness and healing are found hand-in-hand in
relation to the redemptive work of Jesus. I like to call it Calvary’s double
In one instance, as Jesus was teaching to a packed house in the town of
Capernaum, four men brought their paralytic friend to the Master to be healed.
But as the crowd overflowed into the street, the men didn’t give up. When they
saw they couldn’t get in through the front door, they climbed up onto the
house, dug a hole in the roof, and lowered the invalid on a cot right in front
Moved by their faith, Jesus declared, “Son, your sins are forgiven!” The Scribes
began to murmur, “Who does He think He is? He’s not God! He can’t forgive
sins!” Knowing their thoughts, He asked, “Why do you question whether it is
easier to say your sins are forgiven or take up your bed and walk?” Then Jesus
went further and told the paralytic man, “Arise! Take up your bed and go
home.” (Mark 2:1-11).
By faith, I appropriate Calvary’s double cure.
