"But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you" (Romans 8:11 KJV)
When we say we’re Christians, we’re not just saying we worship God by Jesus Christ. In John 15:5, Jesus said, “I’m the vine, you’re the branches. I’m in you, and you’re in me.” That’s mutual inhabitation! This is real to God, and it needs to be real to you. You’re not an ordinary person. The life you received in Christ can’t be destroyed by sickness, disease and infirmity.
Years ago, I shared on a very important subject, “The impact of the Holy Spirit on the human body.” The human body is impacted by the presence of the Holy Ghost. When you have the Holy Spirit inside you, your body is literally affected. Colossians 1:27 says, “…Christ in you, the hope of glory.” Then Romans 8:10 shows us the implication of Christ being in you; it says, “And if Christ be in you, though your body be dead because of sin, the Spirit gives it life because of righteousness.”
He wants you to understand that Christ in you isn’t a religious statement; it’s not a meaningless statement. Now that Christ is in you, your body is vitalized by the Spirit! You’re impregnable to sickness, disease, and infirmity. Oftentimes, a lot of the infections people suffer affect the blood; it’s due to the blood life of the human body. But being born again, your body is no longer dependent on blood for its life. Your body lives by the Spirit. Read our opening verse again and discover who you are and what you have in Christ!
Now that you’re born again and have received the Holy Spirit, you should never be sick again in your life! Refuse to yield your body to sickness. Take charge and rule over your body with the Word of God.
"Jesus took care of every form of pain that could have ever come to me. Therefore, with God’s Word on my lips, I establish that victory in my life! I’m immune to sickness, disease and infirmity, because I have the life and nature of God in me! Glory to God!"
