We may need healing from painful situations that have happened to us, or from the effects of our own sinful choices. Understanding God’s desire and power to heal will help us reveal the parts of our hearts that need it.

He heals the broken in heart, and binds up their wounds.

Malachi 4:2 NLT

God went for the jugular when he sent his own Son. He didn’t deal with the problem as something remote and unimportant. In his Son, Jesus, he personally took on the human condition, entered the disordered mess of struggling humanity in order to set it right once and for all. The law code, weakened as it always was by fractured human nature, could never have done that. The law always ended up being used as a Band-Aid on sin instead of a deep healing of it. And now what the law code asked for but we couldn’t deliver is accomplished as we, instead of redoubling our own efforts, simply embrace what the Spirit is doing in us.

[21] Let them praise the LORD for his great love and for the wonderful things he has done for them.

Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins!
