Jesus took the blame and the shame for my sins – on my behalf! He died for me, the death that I should have died – such were my sins!
But how I have struggled with this truth. It’s like being handed an incredibly expensive luxury vehicle free of charge (An Aston Martin please Lord!) which is a totally unearned, undeserved and an unexpected favour. ‘A Gift out of the blue!’ You might say.
So when it comes to my body being sick, can I really accent the gift of Jesus’ atoning work on the Cross? Jesus Himself took my sickness upon Himself? On my behalf.
There’s no way I can accept it Unless… I renew my mind to the truth that makes me free!
I need to meditate in my heart upon the truth. I begin to ‘see’ in my heart the promise of God’s healing grace working in my body.
The Bible tells us – ‘For as he thinks in his heart so is he..’ (Prov.23:7)
The imagination has a powerful role in bringing forth God’s promises of Grace, through faith in Jesus, the Word.
