The Sun of Healing
November 12, 2010 § Leave a comment
Many of this week’s Bible texts focus on the coming Day of the Lord. Malachi 4:1-2 says, the judgment of the Lord on the Day of the Lord will have consequences for both the “evildoers” and those “who revere my name”. The “arrogant” and “evildoer” will be set on fire, while “the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings” over those “who revere my name”. Healing is the form of God’s salvation in this text. Today we pray for all those in our midst that need to experience God’s healing in special ways. May the Sun of righteousness be the Sun of healing for those who are broken and ill. May they already now feel the healing warmth of the sun rising from God’s future.
