He Came to Love, Heal and Forgive
So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ. Ephesians 3:17-18
For the mountains may move and the hills disappear, but even then my faithful love for you will remain. My covenant of blessing will never be broken,” says the Lord, who has mercy on you. Isaiah 54:10
Jesus came to show us how to love and then He showed the ultimate love by His sacrifice on the cross. His love and mercy are not deserved but He chooses to love us BIG.
But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.
By his wounds we are healed. Jesus came to heal us physically, mentally, relationally and spiritually. He demonstrated how to pray and heal others in all these areas of our life. In the Bible we are given specific examples of how Jesus came to heal.
Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. Matthew 26: 27-28
He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west. Psalm 103:12
Jesus came to be the ultimate sacrifice and His blood was completely poured out to wash us white as snow. Scripture tells us that He came to remove our sins as far as the east is from the west. We are forgiven and should walk in forgiveness and stop living in the past. Jesus came to love, heal, and forgive everyone but it is our choice to accept His love, healing, and forgiveness.
