Your ability to heal

In proportion to our commitment to love as Jesus did, our capacity to heal as Jesus did will increase.

Think you don’t have what it takes to heal as Jesus did? Think again. There isn’t anyone who doesn’t have it in them to heal, because there isn’t anyone who doesn’t have it in them to love as Jesus loved. It really is that simple.

I remember a time many years ago when this idea really hit home. It was during a family vacation when my then seven-year-old nephew and I were sharing a room. In the middle of the night I awoke to find that he’d had a heavy nosebleed. (His mother had told me earlier that this had been happening on an occasional basis.)

Rather than trying to wake him from a sound sleep to clean things up, I decided to
take a few moments just to love my nephew. This included an earnest desire to see him as I knew God saw him, right then and there—not as a frail, matter-based mortal subject to nosebleeds, but as God’s wholly spiritual, dearly beloved child.
