Have I been one of those, never knowing??

“He Healed Many of Diverse Diseases” by J. Kirk Richards

I’m thinking about Jesus healing the sick, one by one. What if I’d been there then, with a hidden cancer in my body that I didn’t know was there. I wouldn’t have gotten in the line to be healed, leaving room for those who had obvious needs. I would have stood, quietly watching the miracles, one by one. WOULD JESUS HAVE HEALED ME TOO, even if I didn’t know I needed to be healed? Did healing require his touch? I don’t think so. I wonder if others were healed who didn’t even know they were sick, just because they had faith and believed in Him. Would I have be one of those, never knowing? HAVE I been one of those, never knowing??

Healing by J. Kirk Richards

Luke 7
2 And a certain centurion’s servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die.

3 And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant.

4 And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this:

5 For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue.

6 Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof:

7 Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.

8 For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

9 When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

10 And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick.

And later in the chapter, to the woman who anointed his feet with her hair:
50 And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.
