15 but in your hearts sanctify Christ as Lord. Always be ready to make your defense to anyone who demands from you an accounting for the hope that is in you; 16 yet do it with gentleness and reverence.
The Holy Bible: New Revised Standard Version (Nashville: Thomas Nelson Publishers, 1989), 1 Pe 3:15–16.
In Luke 9:2, Jesus sent his disciples out to “preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick”(NIV). For Jesus, our physical well-being was just as important as our spiritual one, and though we do not have a healing ministry here at St John, we do promote the healing and care of our bodies through our Exercise Room in the Family Life Center.
