In today’s sermon I want to address 3 common misconceptions about divine healing.
(A) Sin keeps you away from being healed
(B) Divine healing is limited only to biblical times
(C) Only Jesus Christ could heal sicknesses
Theme: Healing and salvation rightfully belongs to you
Let us see how the Bible answers the first misconception
1. Salvation earns our healing as well
Read Isaiah 53:5a
A. He was wounded because of our rebellious deeds, crushed because of our sins; (deals with the sin problem)
I. Praise the Lord, O my soul! Do not forget all his kind deeds! He is the one who forgives all your sins, (Psalms 103:2-3a)
II. He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we may cease from sinning and live for righteousness. (1 Peter 2:24)
III. Jesus to the paralytic said, “Son your sins are forgiven.” (Mark 2:5-11) Click here to read the rest of, Sermon: Healing is rightfully yours
1. The Bible uses the human body as a model to describe the structure of the church.
2. Jesus Christ is the head and we are the body.
3. The body is made of different parts but, serves a one purpose. The welfare of the person.
4. The church is formed of different people with different gifts bestowed by the Holy Spirit, but works for a common goal: The edification of the church.
5. Let me share with you a couple of important truths in the area of spiritual gifts (Assuming you already have a basic knowledge of the Holy Spirit and His ministries).

Text: John 9:1-41
The phrase, ‘work(s) of God’ appears approximately nine times in the book of John. The Greek term ‘ergon’ used in place of ‘work(s)’ gives the meaning effort. When you interpret these clues in the context of the gospel (John penned it to prove the messianicship of Jesus Christ), it is clear that John intended to communicate that God is making continuous efforts to set human race free from sin and bondage or to provide salvation.

(Though I titled this sermon as ‘Lessons from the paralytic’ to make this post search engine friendlier, I recommend you to modify the title to suite your preaching.)
Paralytics were very common in biblical times. Medical support was not available for such disabled people and their only hope was divine intervention. This passage tells about a paralytic and the story deals with three principals for having an encounter with God.

A. ‘And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overpower it.’ Matthew 16:18
B. The word gospel derives from the Old English g?d-spell (rarely godspel), meaning “good news” or “glad tidings”. There are plenty of evidence that it contains the supernatural power of God to convict sinners and bring them to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
C. There’s no demon – no human being capable of rendering it powerless unless Christians stop preaching the good news. In today’s sermon lets observe the supernatural power of the Gospel.
