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.
- 1 Peter 2:24
As we take a moment and think about what Jesus did for us on the cross. He, Himself took up our sins in His own body on the tree (cross). He took them straight to the cross, paying the ultimate price with His blood, so we can have the opportunity to be dead to sins, by receiving Jesus as our Savior (Romans 10:9-10,13) and allowing Him to be Lord of our life.
As we received Jesus into our heart and continue to serve Him and obey His commandments, we know we are living unto righteousness and as we do, we have healing available to us at all times: living and walking in health for by His stripes, the wounds He received, we have been healed, we have been made whole.
As the body of Christ, it’s should be a focus, a determination to stay in the righteousness (right standing) of God, for we have been made the righteousness of God (being …approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him, by His goodness… 2 Corinthians 5:21 The Amplified Bible).
We do deal with the flesh, but we can overcome the flesh with the Word of God and with the leading of the Holy Spirit, for He will guide us into all truth (John 16:13).
Scripture Reading: Luke 1:6; 2 Corinthians 5:21
