217 Jesus Wants You Whole





Jesus Wants You Whole


…[Jesus] saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
John 5:6


Many people face difficulties in their lives, originating from their pasts. They may have made wrong choices or were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Sometimes happenings leave scars on people’s lives, not just outward scars but emotional scars. People go through seasons in life that affect them so profoundly that they feel they can’t go on. If you are feeling this way, God wants to change that for you! He does not want you to go through life with all that baggage.

First Thessalonians 5:23 tells us that we are three-part beings – spirit, soul and body. Your spirit is the life-giving part of your being, created in God’s image. Your spirit is you. Within your soul reside your emotions, your will and your intellect. But you are not your emotions; you are not your broken heart. You are a spirit being. And you live in a body. When you go to heaven your body stays here. Your body is not you.

Sometimes we underestimate the impact our emotions have on how we think about ourselves. We can cope so well with hurt, that it is not obvious, even to ourselves, that we are wounded and bruised.

In Luke 4:18 Jesus declares that, “The spirit of the Lord is upon me because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor, he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted.” This shows the importance of a whole heart to God: broken heartedness is the first thing that Jesus was sent to heal. But how does He do that? How does Jesus make our hearts whole?

Colossians 2:10 states that we are complete through our union with Christ. Where we in ourselves are broken, God, through our union with Christ, takes care of (fills in the missing pieces and renders whole) all of the things that have been hurting us.

If I had a candy bar and took a bite of it, it would not be whole. Not only would it not be a whole candy bar, but it would also be used. That’s like a lot of people I know. People feel that not only are there pieces that are missing, but also that the remaining pieces have been used, misused and mistreated. It doesn’t have to be this way. Jesus paid the price so that we can be whole.

When we are complete and there is fullness in our lives, we are less vulnerable to hurt and pain. But when we are not full, our perception of life changes and we become aware of our incompleteness. What’s a key part of Jesus’ mission? He wants you to be restored and made whole. It’s one of the most important things He came to do for you.

Never forget that God made you—spirit, soul and body. If a part of you is used, misused, or broken then you are not whole. Jesus wants to make you whole. Indeed, He came to make you whole.

Will you make a choice to have Jesus make you whole, spirit, soul and body? Now, that’s the choice-driven life!

The Most Important Choice You Can Make: Prayer for Salvation: God in Heaven, I come to You in the name of Your Son, Jesus. I confess that I haven’t lived my life for You. I believe that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that He died on the cross and rose again from the dead so I might have a better life now and eternal life in heaven. Jesus, come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior.
From this day forward, I’ll live my life for You to the best of my ability. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen. Click Here if you need more information.
