A doctor is someone qualified to practice medicine. Doctors identify health problems & by using different techniques (from a prescription to surgery) realign or remove a blockage to allow the body’s natural healing processes to begin. We mistakenly think that doctors heal the sick – in fact, doctors rely on the human body’s marvelous ability to heal itself.
Ministers of God’s Word are like doctors. They help the spiritually sick by identifying problems & administering Biblical solutions. If the patient accepts the treatment, then God can begin the process of healing.
We should always be thankful to our ministers; but remember, if we have received spiritual healing caused from their insightful prescriptions (sermons) all they have done is remove a blockage or realign our spiritual life so that God’s amazing grace can flow back in & accomplish the actual healing.
Pro 3:6-8 (GNT): “Remember the LORD in everything you do, and he will show you the right way. Never let yourself think that you are wiser than you are; simply obey the LORD and refuse to do wrong. If you do, it will be like good medicine, healing your wounds and easing your pains.”
