Scripture gives us the best and most realistic help for those who experience mental distress of various kinds. Though believers may experience the bleakest possible situations they are sustained.
Self-pity is healed by God’s infinite pity. But it is such a serious disease that it can only be cured by thoroughly exposing its danger and purging its corruption.
This is not about what you might expect. Showing love for our neighbour through this command is not simply about what we do or do not do. It reaches to our hearts also.
Heavy-hearted discouragement is real. It is a constant temptation. Yet, if we seek out reasons and opportunities to encourage others it is bound to help encourage ourselves.
Nothing could be more counter-cultural than living in a way that is God-centred rather than serving the great idol of self. This displays our real purpose. It shows others what we were meant to be.
There are times when God in His providence forces us to stand still. Many lessons can be learned through being still and waiting on God. Much hope and strength may be known.
Spiritual disease is real and dangerous. As we better understand its causes and symptoms we can apply the guaranteed and approved remedy.
When one trial after another descends it can seem difficult to bear. Indeed we cannot bear it on our own. But there is hope and comfort amid many trials as we will discover.
Being in but of the world is a difficult principle to apply for many. How far do you take it? Much could be and needs to be said about how to apply this truth but first of all we need deeper sense of the spiritual principle being taught.
We are tempted to focus much time and energy on unhelpful and distracting comparisons with others. Christ warns us of the danger of doing this and neglecting our personal duty.
There is far more meaning to the word Amen than we may realise. Since we use the word ought we not to know something more of its fuller significance?
Everyone is looking around for hope but we need to look in the right place. Scripture points us to God Himself as the hope and strength for His people in troubled times.
