Christian Healing and OSL

What is Christian healing?


That is a question that is often asked and has many explanations. But really, the answer is very simple. Christian healing is asking Jesus Christ what to do about any disease and doing what he asks us to do so that He may bring wholeness from the inside out. It is not a process of magic in which we get God to do what we ask. It is praying, “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

Christian healing is the manifestation of the creative power of God’s love as He comes to make us a new creation in Jesus Christ. It is concerned not only with the stewardship of our body of flesh and blood, but with our ultimate relationship with God as our Father, Jesus Christ as our Savior and Healer, and Holy Spirit, as the executive of our Father’s will for us as He revealed in Jesus Christ.

What does Jesus ask of us?

Jesus commanded the disciples to heal every kind of disease, every kind of sickness, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, and cast out the unclean spirits. He gave them the authority and power to do this. Seven times His followers were told to heal.

How many times do we have to be told before we heed His word? His disciples learned from Jesus even as we do today. Jesus healed wherever He went. Of the 1,257 narrative verses in the four Gospels, 484 related specifically to healing. We learn to heal the sick today by His commission, the empowerment He has made available to us and the model of practice he has shown us.

Want to know more about Christian healing?

You can do this by studying the Word of God, attending church and Bible classes, reading books, listening to tapes, going to seminars, and attending conferences on healing.

All of these will help, but more help and experienced guidance may be needed. That’s why those called to the healing ministry belong in OSL.

What is The International Order of St. Luke the Physician?

Known by many as OSL, The International Order of St. Luke the Physician is made up of clergy, health professionals, and lay people who believe healing is an essential part of the teaching and practice of our Lord Jesus Christ and that the healing ministry of Christ belongs in the Church today. It is an interdenominational Christian order of faith, prayer, and service with Chapters all over the world.
