Intimacy: A Christian Frontier Part IV

Throughout the Gospels are recorded accounts of Jesus healing physical problems like blindness, hemorrhaging, and leprosy. We also see Him healing spiritual conditions like demon possession and unbelief.

Have you ever noticed that Jesus ministered to a number of people (particularly women) who had sexual wounds? The woman at the well, the woman caught in adultery and the woman in Luke 7 who most likely was a prostitute are examples. They carried unseen and unspoken wounds that held them in bondage.

However, sexual wounds are invisible. How can we know that Jesus healed them? We can tell because those whom Jesus healed experienced freedom from bondage.

The prophet Isaiah told us what the Messiah came to do:

“To proclaim good news to the poor, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance from our God, to comfort those who mourn… to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes…”

There sre many who have overcomer and witnessed God bringing healing to men and women with sexual wounds. They’ve seen Him bind up the broken hearts of those who were abused or betrayed. They’ve seen Him free captives of sexual addiction. They’ve seen Him replace the ashes of the past with the beauty of a redeemed life.

Satan would like you to believe that God cannot redeem the brokenness of your sexual wounds. Have you asked Him to pour His healing into the most intimate areas of your heart?

Talk to God about the hidden wounds you have assumed He could never heal.
