Salvation and Healing

Isaiah 53:5

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. 

               Every aspect of what Jesus endured and suffered through the Passion was accomplishing a gift of grace and benefit to the salvation that it provided for us.   Jesus died for the whole man.  The first and greatest aspect of His salvation is the redemption of our souls, which restores us to a right relationship with our heavenly Father and washes our sins and transgressions away.  Sometimes that is where we stop in our understanding of salvation and all that it provides.  The Lord came to heal us spirit, soul and body.  1 Thessalonians 5:23 says, “And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and [I pray God] your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”  When we look up the meaning of salvation in the concordance it carries with it much more than just spiritual salvation, it means help, deliverance, health, prosperity, welfare and victory.  The wonderful thing about the ministry of Jesus is that while he spoke of spiritual truths which He demonstrated in practical ways.  His very life was a portrait of salvation at work.  Every day the compassion and love of God was manifested through selfless giving and ministering to practical needs in whatever dimension people needed the touch of God.  Psalms 68:19 says, “Blessed [be] the Lord, [who] daily loadeth us [with benefits, even] the God of our salvation. Selah.”   The Lord is indeed our Savior and Benefactor, providing for all the needs of our lives as we trust Him and walk in His grace and truth.  I believe Jesus wants to be involved in our personal lives in the same practical sense that He was involved with the people of His day when walked in this earth.  Hebrews 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.”  Jesus hasn’t changed in His desire and willingness to touch us in the practical areas of our lives.  Everyday multitudes of people are experiencing His touch in a miraculous way.  It is not always in our time or our way, but the Father knows best concerning us.  The important issue is that we understand and embrace His personal love and salvation.  Salvation isn’t an event that happened that time we answered the altar call and asked the Lord into our heart.  That was just the beginning.  Salvation is at work in us as believers every day of our lives.  While it has already sealed us unto God and delivered us from the wrath to come, it is progressively working in our lives His nature through the Holy Spirit.   That salvation is seen through the power and ministry of the Holy Spirit working in our lives according to our need and the work He wants to do in us. 

               Our healing, whether it is physical, spiritual or emotional, is an aspect of our salvation and provision from the Lord.  If this is your need today reach out and let the Healer set you free.  It is as free and easy as when you asked Jesus to come into your heart.  You receive by faith the same way, not by works or how good you are, and you rest in what He has provided for you.  It is not in what you see immediately or just outwardly, it is embracing by faith that by His stripes you are healed.  Let’s not be afraid to trust the Lord for our practical needs as well as our spiritual needs.
