The most precious resource we have is the Word of God. We neglect its power because we fail to realize that the Word of God (the Bible) is Jesus bound in word form. “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth”, (John 1:14). Every day and every moment we have the opportunity to sit down with Jesus as we read His word. God sent His word and He healed us. “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5). Jesus, the Word made flesh, was sent by God to heal His people. God sent His Son to heal us of our sins and its effect on our lives. In dying on the cross, Christ healed us of the wrath of sin, the penalty of sin and the death of sin. Through His stripes we are healed. Jesus loves you. You are loved.
Prayer: Thank You, Lord for delivering my soul from the bondage of sin. Thank You for giving me new life and a hope that is found only in You. Thank You for loving me. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
