But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed (Isa. 53:5 KJV).

And his disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing around you, and yet you say, ‘Who touched me?’” (Mk. 5:31 ESV).

“Therefore the sisters sent to Him, saying, ‘Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick’” (Jn. 11:3 NKJ). Mary and Martha sent the message above to Jesus. Do you see an apparent paradox in the verse above? The one whom Jesus, the great Healer, loves is sick. This is where many of us find ourselves.
“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being” (Gen. 2:7 NKJ). Before the fall, Adam’s earthly body was created from the dust of the ground. The life in his spirit overshadowed the dustiness of his earthly
