The Cost of the Cross

In the film, The Green Mile, prisoner John Coffey heals people only by taking into himself the illness/evil into himself. Later he chokes it out, but the experience drains him.

The healing comes without a cost to the one healed, but is costly to the healer.

“Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows” (Isa.53.4). John Coffey did not die for anyone, but the Lord Jesus did so that those trusting in His death might live.
