Day 36

A Ministry of Healing

from the reading plan

Matthew 5:1-10, John 11:25-36, Romans 12:15, Colossians 3:12-13, 1 John 3:11-24

In light of the day’s reading, pause to reflect on the specific areas you long to see made new and how Jesus’s ministry calls us to join in that restoration. Let these shape your prayers today.

Jesus met pain, tears, and suffering with compassion, empathy, and relational and physical healing. So we respond to those in distress with dignity, compassion, and empathy, lamenting with those who grieve and honoring those who suffer toward the promised end, when God will comfort His people. 

After you’ve read, spend some time in prayer about your call to reflect Christ’s comfort and healing toward others. Comment/share with the community anything that stood out to you or encouraged you from the reading or your time in prayer.

    If I could always be more like Christ. His love for us, his empathy, caring spirit and all his actions were the embodiment of love for others. Never self seeking, continually loving us and giving us the keys to furthering the kingdom of God. May I ever strive to be more like Christ!

    Mike, I was thinking and praying the same….Lord Jesus, help me to see others through Your eyes, especially those that are difficult to love. Help me to love and serve without complaint. Lord make me like You.

    It simply but hard to put into practice. Love in word and deed.
