We have put ourselves into an almost inescapable situation.
Because of our constant disobedience to God, we have sickness, disease, and death.
These things were non-existent in the Garden until the day Adam and Eve disobeyed the Word of the Lord and sinned.
By the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, (Rom 5:17) and it has been downhill ever since.
Some seem to be more afflicted with pain and suffering than others; and many times it’s through no fault of their own but by the hands of another.
I believe that the answers to our problems are found in the Bible. I know many that would disagree and some of those call themselves Christians.
Here is what God says, “If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you.” Ex 15:26
Is this just one of those cutesy verses that we should pat each other on the back and say, “That’s nice!” or should we claim it, believe it, and live it?
This tells us that there are 4 things that need to be done.
We’ll look at those things next time.
