A patient went to the Dr. for his checkup after his accident. Patient angrily said, "My wound have become more sore and painful; what type of Dr. you are?" On examining the patient, Dr. saw that the bandage which he had applied to the patient was missing and a new bandage was over the wound. On inquiring patient said that "Dr. In order to see that my wound is getting healed or not I opened the bandage every day and as a result the bandage lost its effectiveness and a new one was placed". Dr. said you foolish person, "How can you get healed of your wound if you keep on opening it every day, for removing of the bandage every day brought in infection and did not give adequate atmosphere and time to heal and as a result of that your wound have become more sore and painful".
Friends, how often we also in our Spiritual life keep on going to past sinful life scummed with lies, lust, hatred, unforgiveness, jealousy, pride, resentment etc. because we resist God's word and the blood of His Son Jesus Christ to cleanse, purify, sanctify and permeate it in our spirit, soul and body. The Lord calls us to live a Holy and Godly life in the power of the Holy Spirit anchored in His word, but the lack of our hunger and thirst for God's communion often leads us to back sliding and bring further alienation from God Almighty. The Lord in and through His Son Jesus Christ has given us the victory over sin, death and satan but its upto us whether we want to live a "Victorious" Christian Faith Life or a "Defeated" carnal life?
Stop going to your past sinful life for you are been cleansed and purified in and through the Blood of Lord Jesus Christ; Holy Bible declares, " As far as east is from west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us" . Furthermore it says, " Blessed is the one whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the one whose sin the LORD does not count against them and in whose spirit is no deceit." Just as your sins are forgiven in Christ Jesus, so also your Infirmities are been healed with the stripes of Lord Jesus Christ, so claim your physical healing in Christ Jesus. No longer need to live a broken, defeated, depressed life for you are new creation in Christ Jesus for the glory of God. Arise and live a life that of a "Victor" in Christ Jesus.
Remember what Apostle Paul has said, "Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus."
Let us run the race of faith set before us with all humbleness, diligence and in the fear of the Lord, for "He who stands firm to the end will be saved." May God bless us with His grace to remain steadfast in His love and mercy through His Son Jesus Christ.
