The human body is one of the greatest creations of God. He especially made each part to fulfill a specific purpose, in order to facilitate every day living. Unfortunately, there are instances where certain parts of the body malfunction due to sickness. But where does sickness come from? Why do we become sick?
God created Adam and Eve originally to be like Him – holy, intelligent, and live forever. Unfortunately, they ate of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. This results to punishment from God, where sin and death entered this world.
One of the byproducts of sin is death, which is why people age, grow old, and then return to the dust. Sicknesses, while physical and biological in origin, are also results of sin and corruption in the human body.
Now we understand that everyone will suffer some sicknesses throughout his lifetime, the only thing we need to do is to prepare for them, and trust God that He would be our healer.
