If you were suffering from terrible, chronic headaches and you went to see your doctor, he might write a prescription for something like Fioricet. “Don’t worry,” he’d say. “There’s a pill for that problem.”
If you had high blood pressure, the doctor might prescribe something like Benazepril. “There’s a pill for that problem too.”
If you were suffering from anxiety, depression or obsessive-compulsive disorder, he might prescribe something like Prozac. For every problem he has a pill. And if that pill causes another problem…don’t worry, he has a pill for that problem as well.
But wouldn’t it be wonderful if someone came up with a pill, a single pill that could cure all of your problems, no matter what they were? Just imagine that taking this one drug could cure everything from cancer to canker sores, broken bones to broken hearts…and it was absolutely free!
That is exactly what God has done. He is not a doctor that consults a chart on the wall to find the best solution for your varied problems. He is not a wizard that flips through the pages of a spell-book looking for the right enchantment to cure your ills. He is not a pharmacist mixing this potion with that, concocting a suitable remedy for your complication. God only has one solution for all of your problems. His answer is always Jesus. Nothing else and nothing less than Jesus.
If you need healing the prescription is Jesus.
If you need salvation the prescription is Jesus.
If you need peace in your heart the prescription is Jesus.
If you need deliverance from your addictions and compulsions the prescription is Jesus.
For the many problems of the world, God, the great physician, has prescribed the remedy: the only antidote for sin, death and all of its symptoms. God’s answer…His only answer…is Jesus.
“And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.” ~ Acts 4:12
