What Jesus Bore

Jesus bore and took all of our physical, emotional, and mental weaknesses, infirmities, and sicknesses in His body. He bore and carried our spiritual death, sins, and iniquities with His death.

Spiritual death is separation from God. Spiritual death is the absence of spiritual life. God is life.

“For David says concerning Him:
I foresaw the LORD always before my face,
For He is at my right hand, that I may not be shaken.
Therefore my heart rejoiced, and my tongue was glad;
Moreover my flesh also will rest in hope.
For You will not leave my soul in Hades,
Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.
You have made known to me the ways of life;
You will make me full of joy in Your presence’” (Acts 2:25–28, emphasis mine).

Jesus’ physical and emotional punishment was Him bearing the curse — the curse that came upon Adam when he sinned. Jesus bore and carried away the curse of spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical punishment that sin brings.

“Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”), that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith” (Galatians 3:13, emphasis mine).

Jesus’ resurrection brought us the same eternal life that He obtained when He was raised from the dead. In His death Jesus was separated from God His Father. When He was raised from the dead, He was born again. He now lives by the life of the Father.

“He [Jesus] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation” (Colossians 2:15).

This is why we can be born again. When we accept Jesus, we are raise to life by the life of the Father: “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me” (Galatians 2:20).

Accept who you are in Christ Jesus.

Stay strong and prepared!
