Jesus wills to heal the whole person. The whole person is spirit, soul, and body. The spirit is the eternal being who will either spend eternity in heaven or hell. This is our decision alone to make, God does not desire to send anyone to hell. We send ourselves there if we reject Jesus Christ as our Savior. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (NASB). The first step to becoming whole is to surrender to Jesus.
The soul is the second part of our being, and it includes the mind and the emotions. Oftentimes the physical body is sick because the soul needs healing. The ungodliness of today’s society, the selfishness of others, and even our own bad decisions cause great injury to this part of our being. God shares His desire for us in Jeremiah 30:17: “For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds.” Emotional wounds and physical healing go hand in hand with one another. By God’s grace we can learn how to forgive, let go of the past, move forward, and allow the soul to heal.
The third part of our being is the physical body. This is the part that we see every day; it houses our spirit and soul, and God appoints it a time to be born and a time to die (see Eccles. 3:2). But even though it is temporal, Jesus received severe whippings so that it too can be healed and made whole (see Isa. 53:4-5).
God cares about the whole person–spirit, soul, and body. So much so that He records a prayer for its well-being in Third John 1:2: “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”
Dear Father God,
I thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus to heal me in spirit, soul, and in physical body. I believe and receive the healing power of the blood of Jesus to flow through my spirit, to forgive my sins, and to give me eternal life. I thank You for this same healing power to flow through my every cell, tissue, organ, and system to cleanse, heal, and strengthen my physical body. And I am grateful for Your love and compassion to touch and heal my mind and emotions, especially during these turbulent times on the earth.
In Your precious name I pray, amen.
