Is It Our Responsibility To Heal The Infirm?

Should we lay hands on the infirm and heal them?

William Carey, the great missionary to India and Father of Modern Missions, was told by one of the elderly ministers, "Young man, sit down; when God is pleased to convert the heathen world, He will do it without your help or mine." This minister was citing the "Sovereignty of God". It was a good thing that William Carey understood the other half which was the "Responsibility of Man". He went to India and impacted that nation for Christ. 

Today, we have the same dilemma - some Christians believe that if God wants to heal the person, "he will do it without your help or mine."
The truth is that we still have to exercise our faith to believe for healing, lay hands upon the infirm, command the disease or pain to go in the mighty name of Jesus. God has chosen to work with and through us. 

For example, God could open the Red Sea without Moses, but He chose to work through Moses. He told Moses to "divide the water" with his staff. Yes, Moses was to raise his staff then God's miracle was activated. Read Exodus 14:15-16
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground."

Today, we need to believe in the Promise of God for divine healing and to faithfully raise our hands - lay them upon the infirm and command the diseases to go in the mighty name of Jesus. The pains, diseases and even demons have to go because we are the Ambassadors of the Most High God!
