Jesus and the prostitute

She was on her way and I had no preparation or idea what I would say to this woman.  I was about to meet a prostitute who was in very upset over a large tumor that had developed on her neck. The doctors told her it was most likely cancer.  My sister who knew her, was bringing her to me so that I could pray for her and tell her about Jesus.

I think her name was Maria so we'll refer to her as that even though I'm not certain. 

They finally arrived and we decided to take Maria to breakfast so that I could share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with her.  I did my best with my broken spanish, she seemed to understand and seemed open to hearing about Him though.  When we finished we went to my sister's car and I asked Maria If I could pray for her.  She said yes.  As I prayed, I put my hand on the tumor and asked Jesus to heal her.  When I finished, she told me she felt something there but wasn't sure how to explain it.  I told her it was the power of God.

And so Maria went her way and I went mine.  Days later, I heard that Maria was healed of the tumor!  It was gone.  Jesus had healed her and years later, I heard that Maria had become a fired up believer in Jesus Christ...

What is greater, healing or salvation?  Salvation of course.  The body being healed is temporary.  I'm glad Maria's tumor left but I'm even more happy that she gave her life to Jesus!  The soul is greater than the physical body.  Salvation of your soul is much greater. 

Maria was transformed by Jesus.  She went from prostitute to healed and telling people about Jesus.  She became a daughter of the living God that day.

There is power in the name of Jesus, there is salvation in Jesus and what Maria received that day you can receive too.  With God all things are possible, remember that.


All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will never turn away.  John 6:37
