OF the Saviour, and only of the Saviour, is it true in the fullest, broadest, and most unqualified sense, “He went about doing good. From this description it is evident that He did good personally. The evangelists constantly tell us that He touched the leper with His own finger, that He anointed the eyes of the blind, and that in cases where He was asked to speak the word only at a distance, He did not usually comply, but went Himself to the sick bed, and there personally wrought the cure. A lesson to us, if we would do good, to do it ourselves. “He hath left us an example that we should follow in His steps.”
