Almost three months ago, as my youngest son was scaling a wall and conquering boulders, one of the boulders decided to cease cooperating. My wife called me to tell me that Sam needed to go see a doctor. Prognosis? Broken ankle. He is doing quite well, thankfully. Tomorrow he will visit his PT for another follow-up appointment. Understand that weeks ago, he could have chosen to scale walls again and hit the Alaskan hiking trails; yet, listening to the PT's advice, Sam has played it safe. Wise choice!
Jesus, when rebuking hypocrites, said that He came for the sick, not the well. When people come to Jesus, they come with admission of their own brokenness - broken in spirit or just plain broken because of sin. Jesus brings healing and salvation. What's next?
Some choose to run right out after accepting Jesus as Lord and attempt to scale and conquer life with new believer zeal and self-determination. That's not bad for a start, but it will not last. We need ST. Like those once broken now benefitting from Physical Therapy, Christians (newbies and veterans alike) need ongoing Spiritual Therapy. We need to engage in follow-ups. We need to . . .
We need to fight the good fight as we look forward to finishing the race. We, therefore, need to keep up the therapy.
