[The Methodist Times]

Faith was the means of bringing the sufferer out of his self-centered helplessness into the fellowship of those resources of divine love and power which went to restore the health, fulfill the harmony, and renew the power of the whole personality. It is more than probable that this ideal was not always completely realized in those who received healing at the hands of Christ. The process of healing by faith, though sufficient for the immediate result, was not always completely carried to the highest point and made lasting there. Yet this completeness of spiritual restoration is of the essence of our Lord's aim throughout his healing ministry. In other words, his own formula, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you," is intended to include bodily well-being through healing, as well as all the other gifts of God's providence. Hence, all our Lord's healing is redemptive, and conversely all his redemption is healing. He makes men whole.
