Christians Get Wounds Too
I have heard some people make statements like, “I believe I have this injury because I have offended God in…”, or I have heard some people make statements like “this believer Is probably ill because he did…”. Well these are very untrue statements; the human body even the body of a believer is still subject to pain, and ailments, therefore going through some form of broken flesh doesn’t make you any less of a believer (Christians get wounds too).
Whenever you are in pain, learn to take care of yourself, and most especially, when you see someone in pain, learn to take care of them too, just as the the jailer did Paul. Don’t deny help when you are in pain, and don’t become so “spiritual” you inhumanely decide not to be of help to people. It’s not a crime to clean your wounds, when you are hurt; or to treat yourself when you are sick. It doesn’t mean God cannot heal, after Paul had his wounds cleaned, he still went about and performed some of the greatest miracles we could have ever imagined. God still heals and can still heal through you.
