Does The Great Physician Seem Far Off?

Those times in which the great Physician walked visibly among men and healed all manner of disease are long since past, and the gates of heaven have opened and let the King of glory in. How is it with us? It seems to so many as if the great Physician were now afar off, away from this earth where we labor and suffer, and inaccessible to our burdened souls. It is not so, my brethren, it is not so.
