Medicine for the soul

My husband said something today that was quite profound. We just finished listening to a sermon on Job at church.

On our way home, we were talking and he said, “We have all kinds of medicine for physical pain but the only medicine for spiritual pain is the blood of Jesus and the amazing thing is that he didn’t hold any of it back. Every drop of blood he had poured from his body while he was on the cross.
