Oh To Be Wise  Meditations

Jesus you bore our sins on your body on the Cross. By your cuts and bruises, yes by your wounds I am healed. You came into this world, sacrifice and offering was not what you desired. But a body prepared for you to take up our infirmities and bear our diseases. This was your desire, for you to be Emmanuel God with us. You came to minister and heal those suffering from afflictions. By touching the leper, by touching the eyes of the blind, by holding the hand of the sick, and even caring for those possessed with evil spirits. You chose to acquaint yourself with grief, to be despised and be a man of sorrows. Willing to dwell in the muck of human existence so that our infirmities, diseases, and most of all our separation from God could be healed. Jesus, we have been sanctified through the offering of your body once and for all. Oh Lord there are so many suffering from poverty, disease, and malnutrition. Show me and empower me to do your will. That I may help to take up infirmities and bear burdens for the glory of your name. Oh Jesus I want love people the way you do. I don't want to isolate myself from what your doing around me. Let me get my hands dirty and let the Holy Spirit be Emmanuel, God in me. I desire to do your will, let this body once ravaged in sin be now an instrument of righteousness. I give my body, my heart, my soul as an act of worship. Study Heb. 2:14-15
