Trusting the Doctor

A medical man under conviction of sin, was visiting a patient who was saved and happy in the Lord. "Now," said he addressing the sick one, "I want you just to tell me what is—this faith in Jesus, and all that sort of thing that brings peace." His patient replied, "Doctor, I felt that I could do nothing, and I have put my case in your hands—I am trusting in you! This is exactly what every poor sinner must do to be saved—put implicit trust in the Lord Jesus." "Is that all," exclaimed the doctor, "simply trusting in the Lord Jesus? I see it as I never did before. He has done the work." "Yes, Jesus said on the Cross, 'It is finished' (John 19:30), and 'whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life' (John 3:16)." From that sick bed the doctor went away rejoicing in Christ.—Scattered Seed.
