"But if the spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you." (Romans 8:11)

The term "mortal bodies" in this text does not refer to our resurrected bodies in the future; it refers to our mortal bodies now. ("Mortal" means death-doomed.) Our bodies will not be mortal in the grave. They are mortal now. The Spirit will not dwell in them then. The Spirit of God dwells in them now. Now is when we need our mortal bodies quickened by God's Spirit which indwells us.

One of the reasons for the Holy Spirit's indwelling our mortal bodies is to heal us of the diseases which continually try to attach themselves to us.

Healing is part of God's plan or covenant for us today. Healing is part of His provision for His children - His body - upon the earth. If we could understand God's plan of healing as we ought to understand it, the sick would simply be healed the moment the sickness tried to touch them.

Confession: The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in me. He lives in me. He quickens my mortal body. He heals my mortal body.
