“And into whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you: And heal the sick that are therein, and say to them, The kingdom of God is come near to you.” Luke 10: 8, 9.
It is the divine plan that we shall work as the disciples worked. Connected with the divine Healer, we may do great good in the world. The gospel is the only antidote for sin. As Christ’s witnesses, we are to bear testimony to its power. We are to bring the afflicted ones to the Saviour. His transforming grace and miracle-working power will win many souls to the truth. His healing power, united with the gospel message, will bring success in emergencies. The Holy Spirit will work upon hearts, and we shall see the salvation of God. In a special sense, the healing of the sick is our work….
The lapse of time has wrought no change in Christ’s parting promise. He is with us today as He was with the disciples, and He will be with us “unto the end.” Christ ordained that a succession of men should proclaim the gospel, deriving their authority from Him, the great Teacher. –Evangelism, p. 544.
