"For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's" (1 Cor. 6:20).

Did you notice God talks about healing before He talks about salvation? He says, "Glorify God in your body, and in your spirit." Healing was not a divine afterthought. It was instituted before the new birth.

Look at what Isaiah 53:4-5 says: "Surely he hath borne our griefs [or sicknesses], and carried our sorrows [or pains]: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 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."

Healing is revealed in verse 4 and salvation in verse 5. Does that mean healing is more important? No, but God knew the body of Christ would have more trouble believing for healing; perhaps that's why He put it first.

Jesus bore stripes on His back before He hung on the Cross. He paid the price for our physical health before He paid the price for our new birth. Healing isn't more important, but God wants us to know it is equally as important to Him as salvation. God wants us to have both salvation and healing, and we receive both the same way—by faith.

So study what the Bible says about the Atonement and the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. As you do, you'll come to a firm persuasion, an unshakable confidence, that you are as healed as you are saved.

Confession:
The work of the Savior is complete. Jesus paid the price so
I could not only be saved, but healed as well. I live free of
sickness and disease. I am healed, I am well, I am whole!
