But how many actually realize the long term, good health benefits that are achieved over one’s life time by simply sincerely repenting, or turning away from, our sins, to God through his Son Jesus Christ, who takes away all of the guilt and sorrow that sin causes and restores vitality and joy to our soul, the essence of our very beings and lives?
So many people suffer needlessly by holding onto their sins by not repenting and all sorts of medical problems can result because of it. I could go on and on with the medical problems sin causes, but I will use as an example taken from Psalm 32.
The psalmist David tells us “Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.” "Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile."Take a look at the third verse in Psalm 32.
Guile is deceitfulness.
“When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long”. (A bone waxing out is to decay.)(In today‘s medical terminology, we call this arthritis and degenerative joint disease.)
And verse four reads: “For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah”Orthopaedic doctors will tell you your bones and joints need a moisture known as synovial fluid. This fluid’s main function is to act as a lubricant, or moisture, to your joints, in the same way that your car engine needs oil to keep it lubricated and running. Without this fluid, your joints and bones will decay, and degenerative joint disease or arthritis will set it.
Blessed indeed are those who have given up their sins to our Lord Jesus Christ and have received a complete pardon for the wrongs we have done against Him. God no longer sees any wrong in us. He only sees the blood of His Son that covers all of our sins, and gives us an eternal home with Him when we leave this world.
How about you? Have you turned to the Lord Jesus Christ for forgiveness of your sins? You cannot hide any sin from God. He knows everything about you, and your sins will make you physically sick in one way or another, in time, if you refuse to let go of them by surrendering to the Lord Jesus Christ for forgiveness. David tells us in Psalm 32 of the great love and mercy the Lord has for us. The Bible tells us that God is always ready to forgive our sins and keep us under His grace. 1 John 1:9
