Be Made New

God’s healing is sometimes physical…but always spiritual.

Matthew 8:8

The centurion said in reply, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof; only say the word and my servant will be healed.”

Jesus never seemed concerned about anyone’s worthiness.

Never.

He never mentioned worthiness as a requirement of God’s attention.

In fact…Jesus reached out to and spent time with those who were considered unworthy.

No one had to pass any tests or answer any questions about beliefs and doctrines.

As a professional officer in the Roman army…the centurion would have been an oppressor of the Jews. But this was no obstacle to Jesus when it came to helping someone in need.

He simply responded.

As Franciscan priest Richard Rohr said, “God does not love you because you are good; God loves you because God is good.”

God loves you in your unworthiness! 

How else would you experience the healing of Unconditional Love?

Allow that knowledge to sink into and saturate your soul.

Be healed.

Be whole.
