Luke 5:30–35 KJV 1900
But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against his disciples, saying, Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners? And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. And they said unto him, Why do the disciples of John fast often, and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees; but thine eat and drink? And he said unto them, Can ye make the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.

IT’S TIME FOR A SPIRITUAL MEDICAL CHECKUP

INTRODUCTION:
We are living in a sick, sick world. Most everyone at one time or another has made a trip to the doctor's office.
Such a venture may be very revealing, profitable, and rewarding, especially when the doctor gives you a clean bill of health.
It may be heart-breaking and disappointing if the examination reveals serious illness or disease. Physical illness is not the world's greatest problem.
The greatest problem in the world today is spiritual sickness. People all over the world are spiritually sick.
Christ is the Great Physician. Let the Greatest Doctor of all ages give you a spiritual check-up.

Has darkness blinded your eyes?

Opened to turn from darkness to light?

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

LET THE GREAT PHYSICIAN EXAMINE YOUR EARS
Do you have ears but hear not?

Do you have ears dull of hearing?

For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
Are your ears turned away from the truth?

Do your ears need to be opened
To hear the still small voice of God.
