Christ Provides the Cure
By Billy Graham
If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.
—2 Corinthians 5:17
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could find a medicine that would absolutely cure human nature’s weaknesses and failures? Conflict, discontent, and unhappiness plague people everywhere. But suppose a cure could be found for humanity’s ills. It would cause a worldwide stampede!
The most thrilling news in the world is that there is a cure! God has provided the medicine ─ and that “medicine” is Christ. Through Him our sins can be forgiven, and by His Holy Spirit within us our lives can be changed and renewed.
Sin, confusion, and disillusionment can be replaced by righteousness, JOY, and HOPE. Our souls can know peace, a peace that is not dependent on outward circumstances. This cure was provided two thousand years ago by Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection for us. Is He working daily in your life, changing you and making you more like Him?
