Weather you are a leader or not, weather you were born-again yesterday or have been born-again for 50 years, youth or old we all have been called to the ministry of Healing. We know that we are called to the Ministry of Reconciliation. Reconciliation is ‘to Be restored back to the Divine Favor of God’. God has committed to us the word of Reconciliation, God has committed to us the Word of Restoration to God’s Favor!
The Ministry of Reconciliation includes Spiritual Healing and Physical Healing. We all are called to The Great Commission, so we all are called to minister healing to the sick. We are all called to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Gospel = Good News, The Good News of the Gospel of Grace, that the BIBLE Preaches is a message of Redemption from sin, sickness and every curse of the law (Gal. 3:13) As surely as Jesus took away our sin He took away our sickness.
Healing the sick is part of the Gospel and Great Commission

As we Continue the ministry of Jesus Christ today we must be certain of God’s Will to Heal, and be certain that Healing is a big part of the Good News of the Gospel that we share. Our part in the Ministry of Healing is to make it available to people in our life as we share with them.
Healing is Available to people today
Healing did not end when Jesus left; After the Holy Spirit came to the followers of Jesus we see the ministry of healing continue throughout the book of Acts. (Acts 3:1-16)
The Holy Spirit wants The ministry of Healing and the works of Jesus to continue through you today. (John 14:12-14)
This day and generation needs healing. God wants to Heal people today of their hurts because of His Love and Compassion. This same Love and Compassion Lives in us. (Romans 5:5)
We are motivated to act by Love and Compassion to minister to the hurting, and we release the resurrection power to heal by laying on of hands.
The same power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead is the same power that heals the sick, and that same power lives in and is stored up in you (Romans 8:11)
God’s Power through YOUR hands. ( Mark 16:18)
Jesus Confirms His Word as we tell it. (To Confirm = To remove all doubt by performing acts of authority)
Act in Love and Faith this week and lay your hands on the sick in Jesus‘ Name, God’s promise is “they (the sick) shall recover.”
