Thoughts on Being Sick

By Russ

I’ve been sick the last few days. I went to work feeling fine but came home feeling awful. Head cold. I slept for 13 hrs. In the few waking hours I’ve had, I have thanked God often for this illness for the following reasons:

  1. My illness reminds me that God never gets sick. He is never not 100%. He has always been in control of disease. He is worthy of Praise because if this.
  2. Christ in his incarnation, had to have been sick at some point because the book Hebrews tells us that he was like us in every way. I praise him because he knows me and all that I go through.
  3. This illness is for my good. In the book of Romans, God tells us that all things are worked by him for our good. Including head colds.
  4. This physical illness is a great metaphor for what happens when you sin in the body of Christ; the rest of the body feels it and is affected by the dysfunction.
