Christ Is the Will of God in Action

I [Jesus] can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. — JOHN 5:30

Christ is the expression of God’s will. People sometimes say, “I don’t know what God’s will is.” Well, Jesus is the will of God. I like to say it this way: Christ is the will of God in action. If you want to see God at work, look at Jesus. If you want to hear God talk, listen to Jesus. There’s no better way of ascertaining the proper answer to, “Is it God’s will to heal me?” than by reading the Gospels. They record the teachings and works of Christ.

You see, when Jesus healed the multitudes that thronged Him day after day, we see the Father revealing His will. We see God at work. When Jesus laid hands on everyone and healed them, He was doing and revealing the will of God for our bodies.

One time I was reading a report by some theologians of the Episcopal Church. They had appointed a commission to study the subject of divine healing and to report back to them. After three years of study and research in both the Bible and history, their report concluded, in effect, “The healing of the sick by Jesus was done as a revelation of God’s will for man. No longer should the Church pray for the sick with the faith-destroying qualification, ‘If it be Thy will.’”

The message taught throughout the Gospels is one of complete healing for the spirit, soul, and body of men.

Confession: To discover healing as the will of God for me, I look at Jesus in the Gospels. He revealed the Father’s will. He healed those who were sick. Therefore, I know that it is God’s will that I be healthy and whole.
