Thought for the day 14th of August 2011
“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed” 1 Peter 2:24.
I do not know whether you have ever really thought why Jesus died on the cross and what the benefits of that for us are. Most people know that he did die for our sins. Unfortunately, very few know that He also died for our diseases. Sin, disease and death have never been in the plan of God for us. These things come from a personality that we call Satan. All this bad stuff is coming from him. He can justly be called father of all evil.
However, let us not forget that Jesus died to redeem us from power of Satan and bring us under the power and authority of God. That’s where we find freedom from sin and sickness and one day there will be no more death. That is God’s plan and if you believe you can be free from all evil stuff that this world is full of. I mean sin and diseases. Read the Bible and you will be convinced about the will of God. He wants you to be free from sin and well in your body. I wish you that too. God bless you.
