If we think that we can keep dancing and ministering without taking a personal "sin" inventory, we are in for a rude awakening. It is time to check our "medi-sin" cabinets for anything that we are doing that is contrary to His will for our lives. Making a habit of sin should not be a routine practice for anyone confessing Christ, and especially those who are serving Kingdom purposes. Medicine only provides temporary relief. Healing addresses the problem and removes it from our midst. What sins are we masking through a "quick fix?"

Obvious sins are easier to pinpoint, but there are many of us promoting hidden sins within. Some of us proclaim to love each other with our mouths, but murder each other with our actions in secret. Others are so focused on promotion that they sabotage what the Lord is doing through someone else's life and ministry. There is a need for healing in every area that causes us to take our eyes off of Christ.

He is a Balm for those who need healing and deliverance from torment of the mind, impurity of heart, and a broken spirit. We often dance about healing, but what about those who need to be washed and purified from internal minefields and scars from years ago? Let us continue to let the mind of Christ be in us so that we may do the will of Him who sent us. He paid the final price for us to be healed of sin in every form. The choice to be made whole is up to us.

Genesis 4:7 (NKJV)
If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.”

Psalm 103:10 (NKJV)
He has not dealt with us according to our sins, Nor punished us according to our iniquities.

Proverbs 17:22 (NKJV)
A merry heart does good, like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones.

Mark 2:17 (NKJV)
When Jesus heard it, He said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.”
