One form of healing is found in the above passage when it opens with: â€œChrist has set you free!â€ What is meant by FREE? The freedom spoken of here is referring to a spiritual healing. It is that time when one learns about the reason we are Christian in faith and practice.
For some it comes early in life as we go through confirmation and for others it is an experience of just saying, “Yes, Lord, I receive as my Lord and Savior.” In other words, we still live in a real world with real problems, but spiritually we have a renewed life. A life that gives us strength for the daily journey.
I hope you have read the above passage from Galatians and, if you have, please go back and read it again as it gives us some very practical practices to live out in this life.
Granted, we live in a world that is ever changing in ways that Christianity is not being looked upon as it once was. The worldview is changing thus in some areas of the Christian faith there are changes coming about that tell us there is a need for healing in the church so the world around us can see what the real mission of Christianity is all about.
Need spiritual healing? Physical healing? Emotional healing? There is help. There is hope. Give our Lord Jesus Christ an opportunity to minister to you by reaching out to a church and asking how you can receive this healing.
I believe Christ wants to offer healing for people today just as He did when He walked this earth. I have experienced His healing in both my spiritual life and physical body.
