I can come in at any time, no appointment necessary, no payment required.
All I have to do is show up, tell my chiropractor where it hurts, and she will apply the proper remedy and send me back into the world in much less pain and much more able to do whatever I need to do.
She is a healer in the truest sense of the word and she has faithfully loved and cared for myself, my church, and my family as if she were the one getting blessed.
The deal was that she would freely take care of me so I could do the same for others.
I rarely avail myself of this grace.
I wonder if she’s working that day, I wonder why she’s so kind, I don’t believe I deserve such kindness, I can handle it on my own…until I can’t.
The other day I couldn’t.
The pain was greater than my pride and I got in the car and drove to her office.
As God would have it, she met me at the front door.
She placed her arm around my shoulders, walked me through the waiting room where other people were doing what you do in waiting rooms, into her office,into treatment, and a few minutes later I could walk upright again.
No appointment, no payment, no more pain.
She advised me that I need to come regularly for a while as I’m kind of messed up.
On my way back to work I was so very thankful for the treatment I had received and wished that all things could be so easily remedied by someone so kind.
It was at that point that I remembered this;
“Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
(Hebrews 4:14–16 ESV)
No appointment needed, no waiting, no payment expected or required.
Sounds almost as good as my doctor.
