The Unfailing Gospel

"Anodyne" is often prescribed as a means of relieving pain. The word, in fact, means "soothing," or "freeing from pain." But anodyne, like every other earthly remedy frequently fails to make good its beautiful name. The almighty, never-failing anodyne for the woes of the world and the sins and sorrows of the human soul is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the healing, soothing power of God to every believer.
