grace as something that lifts us out from things that we consider undesirable. I think this is because so many of us only turn to God when things get bad and we feel we cannot handle it ourselves. But this is only half the story. These verses remind us that the from implies a to. Being saved is not only deliverance from “bad things,” it must be also understood as delivered to an abundance of good.

God’s will for us to experience health? Doctors who understand will tell you that they do not and cannot heal.

There is a healing Presence that we have the opportunity to experience in all facets of our lives.
