"God does not ask much of us when we first come into contact with Him in our deep need. But He does insist that we have some grasp on the Christ, the Comforter, and the cross. That will see us through."
--From the devotion "An Almost Empty Barrel" on 1 Kings 17:8-16
"The healing of the body is part of the tidal wave of blessing that comes to us by way of the cross. Our resurrection bodies will be immune to sin and suffering. They will be like Christ's glorious body, beyond the reach of disease, disaster, death, and decay."
--From the devotion "By His Stripes We Are Healed" on Isaiah 53:5
