My God stuff thinkings

Immunity and God

As a nurse, I am frequently administering vaccines to my lovely patients. It is amazing how the body works...

For months I had been sure there was some spiritual comparison I could grow from, concerning our immunity - it had evaded me completely until I sat in my cars passenger seat surrounded by my loud giggling kids and co-conspirator husband on the way back from a rare  lunch-out and movie treat.

I realised: Immunity to a specific disease is formed in only two ways. In simple terms...

First: a virus is introduced to a body in which this antigen triggers the activation of immune cells to create antibodies against it. The antibodies become like memory cells. They are a 'lock and key' response. The locked in disease will kill unless it has the right key to open a fight against it. Once this fight occurs, antibody memory cells will be available in the body to react against the same threat in the future.

Second: a vaccine 'key' of antibodies - fit specifically to the 'lock' of antigen - can be actively injected. These antibodies are designed to not cause a response of disease in the body - just trigger the memory cells to fight because it recognises danger when it sees it!

It is brilliant!

God, in His foresight and limitless wisdom, has given us two ways to fight the disease of sin in our lives too. The hard way or the easy way.

First, we can be introduced to the 'sin' by having it breathed on us by a sick person, or touching something that is a carrier and not washing our hands. The sin causes stress to us and we are less able to function well. We go through the internal fight of regret, self-accusation, or flat-out denial of it in our bodies. Sometimes the sickness is too strong and we die.

Most often, we fight through it and gain a memory to how it felt, and what to do to fight next time.

 

OR...

 

We could arm ourselves with the injection of God's forearming and powerful Words. This type of vaccine will trigger the same memory of how to attack the offending object - our best response when confronted by the same sin in the future.

This kind of vaccine works to let the truths of God trigger our memory - to fight the bug as soon as it is seen. The vaccinated virus has much less chance to cause crippling longterm problems, to keep us from running in full health as God's warriors!

As with a vaccine, a person may have literally hundreds at a time and not overwhelm the immune system. We can not have too much of God's memory verses ready to bulster us to fight the first sign of sin in our lives. Thankfully God's word has the memory power inbuilt so I don't have to struggle with what is a foreign sin virus in my life. Get those words on board and build your immunity!!

 

He is so marvelous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kylie, I would be delighted to have my name as a side character in your next book. I am telling anyone who will listen that they too must read The Book of Told.

For the first time in many years I have found a book that I didn't want to put down. I wanted to just continue reading to find out where the story was going.
