It’s almost impossible to convey the love of Christ to people when you feel hostile toward them. Be kind. Life’s ups and downs shouldn’t be a Ferris Wheel, endlessly repeating, but a mountain railroad taking you to a lovely destination.
Soul-wounds need care, treatment, and healing, just like physical wounds do. Don’t neglect your mental and spiritual health care. Many people are so busy that they forget to be soul busy, but true success comes from within.
Just because your brain is grey, your thoughts don’t have to be. Fill your brain with bright, positive, uplifting thoughts. God loves people so much that He wants to help us get untangled from our thoughts and behaviors that are hurting us.
The kingdom of God is not a human hierarchy, but the direct government of God in individual people’s hearts. Early Christianity offers a route to wildness that doesn’t destroy, but sets free, thru the noninstitutionalized Holy Spirit.
Don’t let your lifestyle choices fillet your soul and leave you empty inside. Learn to live so that you are enriched within.
I see partially. God sees entirely. I need to trust God’s viewpoint, not mine.
The real “Supreme Court” is the voice of God speaking in the human conscience. People who silence their conscience tune out the voice of God. Maintaining mental health is much easier when you listen to and obey your conscience.
A culture that encourages people to ignore their conscience (and criticizes those who don’t) will slowly fall into angry anarchy. Following your conscience produces better results than disobeying it. Try it and see.
Language and images are mental and emotional programming. The media you consume will gradually mold you into its likeness.
Instead of an audience of people dangling on one man’s words, church could be a web of people actively supporting one another. No one should be lonely in church. Church should be a living demonstration of Spirit-led community and supernatural caring. When God’s holy spontaneity is rejected by churches, He still seeks individuals who will hear and obey the Spirit way.
