病 [Sick]





Book: James (New Testament)
Author: James

James 5:14 :“Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.”

Today’s Meditation: Sometimes when we are sick, it is due to our body which goes against the law of nature where we need medical attention. However, sometimes it is due to our body which goes against the law of spiritual life where we need prayers from the elders of the church. Anointing with oil is related to both of this as the Jews in the old time believe in the healing ability of olive oil. We should not ignore the ability of medicines by praying. We pray the Lord to heal us, but the Lord can choose His action. Anointing oil is done in the name of the Lord, which means the final healing is still decided by the Lord. We are the members of the Lord’s body. The Bible says, if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it. Thus, every brethren’s prospect is closely related to the church.
