RECOMMENDING DR. JESUS CHRIST TO YOU

WISE WORDS

“Christ is the most cheap physician, he takes no fee. He desires us to bring nothing to him but broken hearts; and when he has cured us he desires us to bestow nothing on him but our love.”

“Christ heals with more ease than any other. Christ makes the devil go out with a word (Mark 9:25). Nay, he can cure with a look: Christ’s look melted Peter into repentance; it was a healing look. If Christ doth but cast a look upon the soul he can recover it. Therefore David prays to have a look from God, ‘Look Thou upon me, and be merciful unto me’ (Psalm 119:132).”

“Christ is the most tender-hearted physician. He hath ended his passion but not his compassion. He is not more full of skill than sympathy, ‘He healed the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds’ (Psalm 147:3). Every groan of the patient goes to the heart of the physician.”

“Christ never fails of success. Christ never undertakes to heal any but he makes a certain cure, ‘Those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost,’ (John 17:12). Other physicians can only cure them that are sick, but Christ cures them that are dead, ‘And you hat he quickened who were dead’ (Eph 2:1). Christ is a physician for the dead, of every one whom Christ cures, it may be said, ‘He was dead, and is alive again’ (Luke 15:32).”

“Christ is the most bountiful physician. Other patients do enrich their physicians, but here the physician doth enrich the patient. Christ elevates all his patients: he doth not only cure them but crown them (Rev. 2:10). Christ doth not only raise them from the bed, but to the throne; he gives the sick man not only health but also heaven.”

(Thomas Watson 1620-1686)
