ab_simpson"Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there?" (Jer. viii. 22).



Divine healing is just divine life. It is the headship of Christ over the body. It is the life of Christ in the frame. It is the union of our members with the very body of Christ and the inflowing life of Christ in our living members.



It is as real as His risen and glorified body. It is as reasonable as the fact that He was raised from the dead and is a living man with a true body and a rational soul to-day, at God's right hand. That living Christ belongs to us in all His attributes and powers. We are members of His body, His flesh and His bones, and if we can only believe and receive it, we may live upon the very life of the Son of God.

Lord, help me to know the "Lord for the body and the body for the Lord."

There is healing in the promise,
There is healing in the blood,
There is strength for all our weakness
In the risen Son of God.

And the feeblest of His children,
All His glorious life may share;
He has healing balm in Gilead,
He's the Great Physician there.
