Sin Is A Spiritual Sickness With A Lasting Cure
Romans 15:1-3 (KJV) We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification. For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me.
Sin is a spiritual infirmity, not a medical illness. It is a divisive affliction naturally present or innate from one’s physical birth on this earth. There is only one cure that will repudiate this corruption and disparity working in every soul. However, each individual must seek God’s eternal answer, choosing to apply His lasting salve to their soul. Or not, some souls elect to ignore the calling of God by attempting to bear their burden and often ignore the needs of others.
This verse above speaks to the congregation of a Roman New Testament church. However, it is often applied today among saved and lost souls to bear the burdens of others. Contextually it points to encouraging unity among members of an ancient Roman church. However, this can be applied to harmony in other relationships, like a biblical-based cement of sorts.
Because of sin’s presence, many conflicts are present on this earth, both in and out of the church. God calls His spiritual family to stand firm, to endure, especially concerning division within the church. Secondly, God calls humanity to stand tall and Christ-like among disunity at work in this world. Doing so requires spiritual growth and maturity, laced together with a sincere love of God.
Sin naturally causes strife and division. The love of God ushers in a lasting cure for sin and burdens of the heart. Each person can accept the spiritual prescription lovingly given of God for the removal of sin. Doing so brings eternal unity and lasting love for every spiritually softened soul, especially within the church among softened souls.
