The Great Physician


16 And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?
17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Mark 2:16-17 KJV
           ~~~~~~~~~~~
When you are sick you need a doctor's care,
For he knows how to bring you back to health.
A broken bone can give you quite a scare;
He knows just how to mend it – that's his wealth.
When Adam disobeyed it all began,
This plague called sin, a terminal disease.
It permeates the soul of every man,
And keeps us from our God despite our pleas.
The Great Physician came to make us whole.
He had to yield His life and shed His blood.
When we submit to Jesus Christ our soul,
Then we are healed beneath the cleansing flood.
           The only way to heaven's to get well;
           The only remedy: in Jesus dwell.
           ~~~~~~~~~~~


REMEMBER: Jesus bore ALL your sins on that cruel cross so that you might be made whole through Him.
