who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed. 1 Peter 2:24
Originally, God created man healthy and whole. But because of Sin man became weak and venerable in his soul and body.
The body is very important to live on earth and to do God’s work in full strength.
When Jesus was sent to earth by God to fulfill his will, God prepared him a body.
Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said: "Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you prepared for me; Hebrews 10:5
Without a body, it is not only very difficult it is also impossible to do the will of God on earth.
Jesus paid for our soul and body. The reason that Jesus paid the price for our sickness is that we must be strong and healthy to run for God and serves Him and His kingdom in our body.
He came to destroy eternal death for those who receive Jesus as savior and Lord of their lives and also to destroy weakness in our body so that we may do the work of God in strength.
We can’t really serve the Lord on earth fully if our soul is saved and out body is still weak and unhealthy.
When evening came, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed; and He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were ill. This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet: “HE HIMSELF TOOK OUR INFIRMITIES AND CARRIED AWAY OUR DISEASES.” Matthew 8:16-17
As He himself took our infirmities and carried away our disease, let’s resist the devil to live healthy and strong.
