Commentary from Pastor Mike White:

…and He received them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who had need of healing. – Lk 9:11

Jesus preached the Gospel, and then healed those in need of healing. This is the same template we are meant to follow today: to share the Good News, and then heal the sick in Jesus’ name!

When the atmosphere is ripe with the word of God, healing happens automatically, as soon as we lay hands on the sick and open our mouths to pray. The way we set the atmosphere is by speaking to people about the kingdom! When we preach the Gospel, God promises that He will follow our speech with signs and wonders.

And these signs will follow those who believe… they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover. – Mk 16:17-18

When we believe God’s word and speak it out in faith to others, we will never have to pursue healing; instead, healing will follow us!

Prayer:

Father, give me the boldness to preach Your word in every corner of the globe! I know that when I step out in faith and share the Good News with others, signs and wonders will follow my speech! Thank You for the holy confidence I can have in You.
