Weekly Verse

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness light has dawned. Isaiah 9:2

Have you been HEALED by God? I'm not talking about sickness--even though He does that too!--I'm talking about spiritually. We have all sinned, each and every one of us, but God has this awesome plan. Through Jesus, we can all be HEALED. FORGIVEN. CLEANSED.

“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
 Jesus died on the cross so all of us--undeserving sinners-- could be SAVED and HEALED. If you have accepted Jesus, your sins are wiped clean, and you have truly been HEALED of something worse than disease--evil and sin!

God never promised us that our lives would be easy... and a lot of times we know that first hand. Life can be hard, but God uses hard situations to teach us and to draw us to Him. If we never went through trials, we would never know what it is like to NEED Christ! Without that need, we may never give our lives over to the Lord. God uses trial and tribulation to bring us to Him and to allow us to be FORGIVEN, CLEANSED, and HEALED.

We've all done things we regret--at least I know I have-- but through Christ we can move past all of the terrible things. We can live our lives freely because we have been FORGIVEN. We can start over, begin anew, because we have been HEALED.
