When Christ healed people he forgave them of their sins.

The scripture we studied today was in the Bible, Mark chapter 2.  I found it interesting that when ever Jesus healed someone, he didn't say anything like "you are healed", instead he forgave them of their sins, and then they were healed.  That's my interpretation anyway.

NIV Mark Chapter 2:1 A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home. 2 They gathered in such large numbers that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them. 3 Some men came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them. 4 Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus by digging through it and then lowered the mat the man was lying on. 5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralyzed man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Read the chapter.

It's amazing that once we start to straighten out our life, things start to get better.  God bless you in your recovery and healing.
