Jesus paid the price for us to be well – a Bible verse on healing 1 Peter 2:24
Who His own self bore our sins in His body on the tree that we having died to sins might live to righteousness: by whose stripes you were healed,
1 Peter 2: 24
I have read that the brutal Roman flogging that Jesus endured was horrific and violent. A flagellum similar to a ‘cat o’ nine tails’ that had several leather strands attached embedded with lead and sharp pieces of bone was the instrument of torture.

He will never let us be lost!
For God so loved the world, that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.
This great love dispels all doubts about our eternal destination.
For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.

Walking with Jesus is walking in the light of life
Again, therefore, Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life.”
John 8: 12
In John’s Gospel Chapter 8, the stage is set for an amazing showdown between Jesus and the religious people who contended with him. They were always looking for ways to catch him and trap him into saying the wrong thing. However, not once did Jesus ever say something that was not a great truth.

A prayer to know Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour
Dear Father God in Heaven
I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Romans 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me!
In Jesus’ Name I pray.
If you have prayed this prayer sincerely you have been born again. This means that God, now your Father, sees you as His child. He also sees your past erased and your sins forgiven because of what the Lord Jesus did on the cross for you. This is what grace means – undeserved favour from God. You now have confidence towards God and have nothing to fear when you die because to depart the body is to be forever with the Lord.
Now, would be a good time to find other Christian believers – a church that preaches the Word of God. Also, it may not be easy to understand at first, but, read the Bible and the Holy Spirit will enable you to understand more and more each day – it’s a lifetime’s joyful study for all of us. A good place to start is John’s Gospel and then Paul’s letters to the Romans. Also, you can pray to the Father in the Name of Jesus and He will hear your prayers. You can also ask for the Holy Spirit to baptise you in his power and love – this will enable you to understand the Bible and strengthen you in your daily walk with God. There is so much more to be said about the Holy Spirit but Jesus promised that when He returned to the Father the Holy Spirit would come and comfort and help the believers until the Lord’s return.
