Dr. W. Gifford Jones’ M.D. says that medical advances now make it possible for doctors to predict ailments before they strike. He says that blood studies can now show a pre- diabetic state. Then helpful and appropriate steps can be taken. Like our medical condition, it is also possible to know our spiritual condition, as diagnosed by God. For example the Bible states clearly that every single person is a sinner, by nature and by choice- “There is none righteous, no not one!” That, is a hard pill to swallow. But when we honestly accept that fact, we can move on to acknowledging that on our own, we are incapable of pleasing God. Then, when we’ve admitted that humbling truth, we are ready to make the greatest decision of our lives- explained by John, in his gospel- “…as many as received Him,(Jesus) to them He gave the right to become the children of God, to those who believe in His name.” That’s the diagnosis and prescription of Jesus, the Great Physician.
