I want to talk about, The Dilemma of Christians Being Sick, and having diseases and not walking in health.

3 John 2 King James Version (KJV)

2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

  1. Many Christians think that sickness is a result of sin. But why are Christians who do not practice sin get sick? And I know that with some sickness sin is behind it, but we have Christians who are living good lives.
  2. When a Christian dies prematurely it seems the stock answer among Christians when something like this happens often is, it must have been God’s will. No, God said He’ll satisfy you with a long life.
  3. For nearly 44 years while in ministry I watched Christians get sick and often die from a variety of illnesses in spite of many prayers and the effort of medical profession. I was faced personally, witnessing even non Christians getting well without prayer. The medical profession aren’t even acknowledging God in their lives.

Here are the questions to ponder. Before we continue, let me think about this subject of sickness among Christians and ask them questions to stimulate our thinking.

  1. Could it be possible that Christian are too passive when it comes to sickness, accepting and enduring sickness without resistance? We must begin to resist, not accept, not settling with just going back to the doctor. Medicine after medicine, changing medicine, getting more medicine.

I’ll talk with you more about it tomorrow, but we have to get a consciousness. We have to resist this sickness and know what to do.
