Eternal Health Care - Martin Wiles

This truth gives them confidence that they have eternal life, which God—who does not lie—promised them before the world began. Titus 1:2 NLT

My wife and I were among the thousands who had no health insurance. After five years of working at a place that offered it, I had left for a ministry position that didn’t offer it. Due to health concerns, my wife had also resigned her position where she had it. Finding a physician who would see uninsured patients and affording him or her if we could find them—as well as the medicine we needed, was a challenge. Needed surgeries and other preventative procedures were postponed and off-brand medication welcomed. After a long four years and new government regulations, we were finally granted long term health care at a reasonable cost. Not having to worry about paying full price for surgeries, doctor visits, and medicine was a refreshing relief. 

Paul, in his letter to Titus, also speaks about a health care plan—one that’s free, doesn’t terminate with a change of jobs, doesn’t have a co-pay, and doesn’t disqualify based on pre-existing conditions. The name of the plan is Eternal Life, and it’s available to all who are willing to sign up. 

God doesn’t lie about his plan or place disqualifying clauses in small print at the bottom of pages no one reads. He is open and up front. The cost of the plan has already been paid by God himself. The only requirement is that I sign on through faith, obedience, and a promise to love him with all my heart, soul, and mind. When I build my life on faith in Jesus Christ, eternal life is mine for the asking. I can trust the premium’s promise because it’s underwritten by a God who doesn’t lie. 

What long term health care plan have you signed up for?

Prayer: Father, we thank You for the assurance of eternal life with You.
