It is reported that our country has one of the highest costs of healthcare in the world. In 2021, U.S. healthcare spending reached $4.3 trillion, which averages to about $12,900 per person. Without health insurance, it is likely that most of us could not afford to be cared for and treated if we were to become injured or seriously ill.
When it comes to our spiritual lives, we all are in need of spiritual healthcare. The Preacher of Ecclesiastes stated, “For there is not a just man on earth who does good and does not sin” (Ecclesiastes 7:20). Romans 3:23 also says that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” In our sinful state, we need spiritual healing which can only come from God. However, forgiveness and salvation comes at a great price!
Our spiritual healthcare premium has been paid by the precious, innocent blood of Jesus Christ. “For He (God) made Him (Christ) who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21).
The wonderful news is that God’s spiritual healthcare is available to all people everywhere. “For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men” (Titus 2:11). We must always remember the great cost of our spiritual healthcare and that we are forever indebted in His service.. “For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s” (1 Corinthians 6:20).
