God's Hospital....The Church


And when Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of a physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners. Mark 2:17


I have written in the past about God's 'waiting room' which most of us have been in at one time or another while we wait for an answer to prayer. Waiting rooms are not fun but they are necessary. All of us need to admit we are not perfect people. Don't compare yourself to some one else or your your family to another family. 

The church is God's hospital of sorts. You go there to get well. You go there to get filled with the word and get hope. The enemy may try many ways to get people to think church is unimportant. Maybe the problem is you need to find a dynamic growing church where you can find a body of believers you can relate to. Don't let Satan try to get you into the excuse mode or think it is not necessary. 

That church 'hospital' can meet many of your needs to include the need to open up and relate to others and share your hurts and become transparent. In an ideal situation this body of believers becomes your family. Do you have that family in your life? 

PRAYER: I am ever grateful Lord for the body of believers who are there to lift me up when I am down. The church truly is a hospital and we all need it's care. In Jesus' name. Amen.
