The hospital is a place for the sick and afflicted. You don’t go to a school when what you need is surgery. You don’t go to the library to look for vegetables. For the type of healing that we need, we have to go to a specific place which we know can give us the kind of attention and care that we require.
The hospital of the spirit is the church. It has long since been known that this is the place where the spirit of God dwells while on this earth. He visits us and lets us feel His love. He is the owner of the hospital. The prophets and apostles are God’s servants. They are the doctors He has licensed in order to do His bidding. They have a great work to do and one of them is taking care of their fellowmen. Through following His divine instructions, they are able to act as a bridge between heaven and earth and convey to us the messages that would otherwise be unknown. God wants us to have direction in this life, especially when we forget who we are, when we wander, and become lost.
He thought of everything and the utmost assurance of that love is when He gave up His only begotten son in order to save the world from our sins. That through the atonement of Christ we may know that we are not alone. We are healed!
