Healing: celebration of the Christ

Christian theology includes not only the dynamic record of Christ Jesus' teachings. Inherent in his words, the Gospels show, was the healing potential of the Christ. Jesus healed because he embodied the Christ, the saving message of God's eternal presence. His words were the inevitable outcome of his works—works that established his God-given authority as the incarnation of the Christ.

When at the Christmas season we celebrate the nativity of Jesus, it is well to lift thought above the human event to a contemplation of its spiritual significance. The Saviour's birth was the appearing of one who was to give undeniable evidence of God's ever-present healing power. Jesus came not only to establish his own sonship, or oneness with God, but also to show others how to assert their own sonship and Christly authority.
