Wednesday July 1 Jesus' Healing

Jesus never put the restoration of the body in the forefront of His mission.  Several times Jesus said,"I am come to do this or that,"I am come that they might have life, "I have come not to call the righteous but sinners to repentance."Only once did Jesus  seek out a man to heal but first it was to forgive the man's sins.  And the healing of the body was only healed to confirm the truth of the far more difficult healing of the spirit.

Daily Dig for July 1

Else von Hollander
To the same measure that we put ourselves at the disposal of God’s cause – to the same measure that we put God’s will into practice – so will we gain confidence in our personal life. For we are promised, “Seek first the kingdom of God and its righteousness and all these things shall be added to you.” That is our faith, and it can answer every need of our time.

Daily Prayer for July 1

Christoph Friedrich Blumhardt

People will come from east and west and north and south, and will take their places at the feast in the kingdom of God. Indeed there are those who are last who will be first, and first who will be last. Luke 13:29–30, NIV
Dear Father in heaven, Almighty God, grant that the nations come under your rule, under your judgment from morning to evening, from east to west, from north to south. For your will must be done, and your name must be honored among all nations. Yours alone is the kingdom; all kingdoms belong to you. Your heavenly kingdom must come so that at last we learn to be at peace and become your children, who submit to you. For your Christ shall carry out your loving, merciful, and perfect will throughout the world. We thank you for all the good you want to provide for us. May your angels watch over us this night. Be with us in all we do or leave undone. Help us with your strong hands, that we may rejoice at heart in all the good you give us. Amen.
