Jesus the healer - Bible study

The Psalmist said

"Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits. Who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases" Psalm 103: 2-3 (NIV)

The blood of Jesus that washed away our sins is the same blood that heals us. As long as the blood of Jesus is available these two benefits will always be open to all that receive them by faith.

Jesus ministry involved a lot of teaching, preaching and healing (Matthew 4:23, Acts 10:38). Isaiah 53 gives us a beautiful picture of the ministry and mission of Jesus. The forgiveness of our sins and the healing of our physical bodies are two vital aspects of Christ's ministry to us.
