Some individuals schedule regular doctor visits, while others hardly ever go. Although our health insurance coverage or any frustrations we have with it, can also effect this frequency; most of us still don’t like going to the doctor, unless it’s absolutely necessary. In fact, there are scores of people who can’t remember the last time they had a routine check-up. But there’s good news. If you’re health smart, you probably don’t need to go very often.
To explain the tremendous advantage of being health smart, let’s turn our attention to the Bible in Acts, Chapter Four. Peter and John, both apostles of Christ, had been put in jail. Why? They discovered healing power in the name of Jesus and used it to cure a crippled man! These apostles didn’t have any book smarts; they were unschooled, ordinary men. Yet they were found teaching and healing people in the name of Jesus. The rulers and teachers of the law who were running the city of Jerusalem were astonished and disturbed, but none could deny the power. Acts 4:16-18: “Everyone living in Jerusalem knows they have done an outstanding miracle, and we cannot deny it. But to stop this thing from spreading any further among the people, we must warn these men to speak no longer to anyone in this name. Then they called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus.”
If the apostles were enlightening and healing so many people, why were they ordered to keep the name of Jesus, hush-hush? Apparently, this made all the authorities feel uneasy and inadequate. How could these uneducated, ordinary men become teachers and healers? The reason: Peter and John were health smart. They had tapped into the ultimate source of power and restoration—Doctor Jesus! They weren’t mandating health insurance coverage or handing out prescriptions and medications, they were restoring health to people mentally, physically and spiritually all through the powerful name of Jesus Christ!
