I Peter 2:24 says, “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.”
Today doctors are looking for the cure to many different illnesses that we face. They learn what the illnesses does and then they determine the most effective way to limit or destroy the illness. All of mankind are afflicted by a universal illness called sin. The solution for this illness is easy. There is only one cure for this sickness and that is found in Jesus Christ. The Bible says, “by whose stripes ye were healed.” Today I have confidence over the sickness of sin. It can’t have victory in my life because Christ has completed the cure for your sins and mine. If you were to get sick with COVID-19 you would want to have a cure. How foolish would it be to reject the cure and die as a result? Yet much of the world is doing that very thing. The death rate without treatment is 100% and yet the survival rate of those who accept the treatment is also 100%. How is your spiritual health today?
