Read Isaiah 53 with Matthew 8:1-17
What was the purpose of the Lord Jesus' healing ministry? How do we approach the faith issues of infirmities and afflictions as believers? The Lord Jesus showed his compassion to "sympathize with all our weaknesses" in healing the leper, the Centurion's servant, Peter's mother-in-law, and all who were brought to him. As Isaiah 53:4 declares "He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows."
