DEVOTIONAL BY BILLY GRAHAM – HOPE FOR EACH DAY
A Healing Word
I have called you friends. – JOHN 15:15
Christ came into a world that had problems much like the ones we grapple with today. Life was short, disease rampant, nations chafed under the heel of Roman rule, slavery was universal. Widows, orphans, the disabled and chronically ill had no social “safety net” to see them through the rough times.
To those without the joy of living, Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly”
To those who bore the chafing burden of the guilt of sin, He said, “Be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you” (Matt. 9:2).
To the friendless He said, “No longer do I call you servants … but I have called you friends” (John 15:15). He had a healing word for each one.
