The Dead Shall Hear and Live

My dear Savior Jesus, may I carry you to the sick and wounded, and then be quiet. I will introduce you, praise you, and testify to your great power. Then I will leave the podium and remember that only your words matter- only you through your Spirit bring life.

Logic fails. I will be bested by those smarter than me. Emotions fail, for I am easily spent. Drive and desire fail when faced with the overwhelming power of a tortured person’s mind, and the onslaught of powers and principalities that govern the affairs of this world. I am no match for any of these.

You alone have the power to silence evil voices in a victim’s mind. Modern medication can dull the voices. But only you, the one who conquered death and lives as our Victorious King, only you can banish forever the voices of despair. You alone can bring true healing. You alone can give a precious soul rest and peace. You alone are the Safe One, the Tender One, our Shepherd and Strong Friend.

“Truly, truly, I say unto you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. For as the Father has life in himself; so has he given to the Son to have life in himself” John 5:25, 26
