A friend… said, “You were healed by faith.” “Oh, no,” I said, “I was healed by Christ.” What is the difference? There is a great difference. There came a time when even faith seemed to come between me and Jesus. I thought I should have to work up the faith, so I laboured to get the faith. At last I thought I had it; that if I put my whole weight upon it, it would hold. I said, when I thought I had got the faith, “Heal me.” I was trusting in myself, in my own heart, in my own faith. I was asking the Lord to do something for me because of something in me, not because of something in Him. – A. B. Simpson

A.B. Simpson walked in healing ministry before healing ministries were popular. God used him in miraculous ways in healing the sick. These A.B. Simpson quotes give us a glimpse of his heart towards God and towards those afflicted with sickness.
