Christ suffered for you DrGeorgeJ Daily Devotion

By his wounds you were healed. - 1 Peter 2:24

The word “healed” can mean either spiritual or physical healing. However, in the context of 1 Peter 2, clearly the verse is speaking of spiritual healing. The verse is talking about sin and righteousness, not sickness and disease. Therefore, being “healed” in this verse is speaking of being forgiven and saved, not physically healed. Let us share 1 Peter 2:21-25:

Christ suffered for you and left you an example to have you follow in His footsteps.

He did no wrong; no deceit was found in His mouth. When he was insulted, he returned no insult. When He was made to suffer, he did not counter with threats. Instead, he delivered himself up to the One who judges justly.

In His own body he brought your sins to the cross, so that all of us, dead to sin, could live in accord with God’s will. By His wounds you were healed. For you were like sheep going astray, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls.

That we may live in accordance with His will...
