Day 36

A Ministry of Healing

from the Everything New reading plan

Matthew 5:1-10, John 11:25-36, Romans 12:15, Colossians 3:12-13, 1 John 3:11-24

BY She Reads Truth

In light of the day’s reading, pause to reflect on the specific areas you long to see made new and how Jesus’s ministry calls us to join in that restoration. Let these shape your prayers today.

Jesus met pain, tears, and suffering with compassion, empathy, and relational and physical healing. So we respond to those in distress with dignity, compassion, and empathy, lamenting with those who grieve and honoring those who suffer toward the promised end, when God will comfort His people. 

After you’ve read, spend some time in prayer about your call to reflect Christ’s comfort and healing toward others. Comment/share with the community anything that stood out to you or encouraged you from the reading or your time in prayer.

    As a teacher I find myself enthralled in an area of dislike, discontentment, and misery. I feel led to change this first with myself allowing others to see how changing our hearts to reflect God’s love can impact our community.

    I believe that just as Jesus met pain, tears, and suffering with compassion, empathy, and healing, so should we respond to those in distress. It’s about dignifying their experiences, offering empathy, and walking alongside them in their grief. We honor those who endure suffering, recognizing their strength and resilience. And through it all, we look forward to the promised comfort that God will provide to His people. It’s a calling to embody Christ’s love and compassion in our interactions, especially during times of difficulty and sorrow.

    John reminds us of the old command to love one another, highlighting Cain as an example of one who failed to do this and murdered his brother out of envy. Instead of following Cain’s example, believers must be ready to lay down their lives for each other, demonstrating love not merely in words but in actions and truth.

    1 John 3:18 Little Children, let us not love in word or speech, but in action and truth.

    This little bit was shown by an amazing teacher whom I worked with and lost his battle to cancer this past week. I only had the privilege to work with him for the past 6 months, but his impact will be for a lifetime. His love for his students and the school was more than just words but in his action of coming back as many times as he could to teach our kids. Truly a light to the world, one of the most positive and wonderful people, blessed to have known him, and thankful he can now live in “peace” with our Lord.
