Just as salvation is by grace through faith, all God’s blessings and gifts are also ours by His grace. They cannot be earned or deserved. This is true when it comes to healing. We all battle with sickness, disease, broken and damaged places in our lives––spirit, soul and body. What does God’s grace offer us for our sick, diseased, broken, damaged spirit, soul and body?
The Bible teaches us that God, by nature and character, is a healer. Healing is an expression of God’s grace to us—an undeserved, unearned gift from God. God heals, not because people deserve it or because He owes it to us. God extends healing to us because of and through His grace.
Healing is one of the benefits that come to us also as a result of Jesus’ work of salvation on the Cross and in His resurrection. At Calvary, Jesus purchased not only our forgiveness, He purchased our healing as well. The prophet Isaiah pointed us to this in Isaiah 53:5 (NIV) “But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed”.
In Jesus, God’s healing grace is available to you!
