Commentary from Pastor Mike White:

“And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all” (Matt 12:15). When we follow Jesus, He heals us. A crowd of witnesses had heard how Jesus healed the man with a withered hand in the synagogue (Matt 12:13). They made the decision to follow Him, and they were all healed: every single one.

For us, the word “follow” does not simply mean to trail behind, but rather to “accompany as an attendant” (Strong’s #190). To follow Jesus means to become His disciple, and agree to conform our lives in service to Him.

The cost of following Him – true discipleship – is high; but the reward is infinite! All who follow Him will be healed; and all who follow Him will enjoy eternity in Heaven!

Prayer:

Father, help me to count the cost of true discipleship. I want to genuinely follow Jesus. I know that as Your Holy Spirit teaches me to follow Him, I will be healed from the inside out. Thank You!
