Are You Calling In Sick?

1 Peter 2:24 says, “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds, you have been healed”

We always like to say that we are healed, but are we really?

Are we truly healed, or are we still calling in sick?

A lot of the situations we go through or the pain we encounter isn’t necessarily always a test or trial that Christians go through during their walk.

We need to learn to practice obedience and commitment!

Check the Scripture above again – every situation, mistake, setback, etc. – God died for that! If you messed up, ask God for forgiveness and move on! Don’t dwell on that! It’s great that you feel bad and wants to please God, but PLEASE move on!

On the other hand, Jesus died for your mess. YOUR MESS! It is up to you to get out of it! God has given you chance after chance and opportunity after opportunity to move past it and free yourself from it, but you choose to stay in it.
