“Himself … Bare Our Sicknesses”

Since I’ve been saved, I’ve wondered why we still struggle with sin and have sickness.  If God washed me clean through the blood of Yeshua, then why didn’t He do a complete package deal?  Fix everything once-and-for-all!  He spoke the worlds into existence;  therefore, it would seem a rather small thing for Him to keep His children free from sin and healthy all the time.  But, the Bible makes it clear that God doesn’t do that … does He?  Even “Elisha was fallen sick of his sickness whereof he died,”  II Kings 13:14
