Sickness can overwhelm and frustrate us. We can go from sick to frustrated when we do not know what is wrong. Working hard to resolve a sickness or a problem is frustrating when we are sure what is wrong and then cannot be certain about the cure or what we need to be doing.
Being sure and certain about illness is important to our health, but what is even more important is being sure and certain about our spiritual life. What exactly is our problem? What can we do about it?
Our problem is we are sinners, and the wages of sin is death.
– for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and the wages of sin is death – Rom 3:23; 6:23a
Our cure for our sin is found in Jesus Christ –
– Rom 6:23 – final result of sin is death and death will remain until we find life IN JESUS!
– John 14:6 – the WAY, the TRUTH, the LIFE!
– Matt 8:17 – Jesus fulfilled the promise of God made by Isaiah the prophet: This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah:
“He took up our infirmities
and carried our diseases.
What we need to be sure and certain (Heb 11:1; Rom 10:17) about is our problem (sickness) that has eternal consequences – sin, and God answer for our problem in the cross of Jesus Christ – 1 John 2:2!
