Spiritual Healing

Sin is the worst sickness and can cause physical illness. So we must try to be spiritually healthy. It is difficult to get free of sinful habits by our own efforts. We need to ask the help of Jesus and, if necessary, fast.

When we are in a state of grace, i.e. without sin, the glorious presence of the three Persons in the Trinity is within us. God is the source of all joy. If we have joy our immune system is strong to fight infections e.g. an experiment was done on honeymoon couples and it was found that they were unable to be infected with the common cold.

If we have a good conscience we have peace. We do not like being worried, anxious, tense or agitated. If we are living a life of union with God we trust God to take care of us and we have peace. Jesus says,“When you are united to me you will look on everyone with love even the unkind and ungrateful”.

“This is what the Lord asks of you. Act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with your God”. (Micah 6:8)
