There’s too much discouragement and depression today. Faith without works (and joy) is dead. If your faith isn’t fun, this can help.

Happy hour? O happy day? Joy unspeakable and full of glory? There was incredible joy in early Christianity. What happened? Christianity slowly began to be presented and practiced as dull and boring. Perhaps it’s time to get back to the joy!

Feelings are a poor ethical guide

It’s popular to obey the destructive voice of lust. Lust and temptation are widely obeyed inner voices that lead to misery.

Wrong often feels right. That’s why your feelings are a poor ethical guide. What the human race has in common: We all need humility, brokenness, and repentance and the grace they bring!

It’s hard to avoid the downward spiral of guilt if you continually engage in guilt producing behaviors. To believe that you are right with God when you aren’t is a very dangerous deception.

The greater the difference between your lifestyle and your conscience, the greater the amount of guilt hidden in your heart. Revival is when Christians are acutely aware of their own sin, cry out for forgiveness, and surrender to Christ’s healing presence.

Sermons are prepared for groups of people, but God wants to speak directly to your heart. Are you listening to Him?

Church displays organization, programming, and religious talks. Jesus wants to display His glory. When you get to know Jesus heart-to-heart, it’s hard to be content just hearing weekly talks about Him. Instead of being fishers of men, too many Christians are caught in a net of sin.

Use your freedom of speech well. Use it kindly, “speaking the truth in love.” You can’t hide truth and learn from it at the same time, however, words spoken with love are much more beneficial than cantankerous insults.

Sin makes mental health difficult.

Although the word sin is seldom used today, its activities are as popular as ever. We live in an age that refutes the concept of sin, while encouraging people to celebrate and boast about their bondage to sin.

Love disapproves of anything that harms those it cares about. That’s why God is against sin! The more people are aware of God and His presence, the more they realize the evil that hides in their own heart.

The seeds of every sin are in each human heart. Your life will be much better if you refuse to let them grow in yours.

Sin is a cycle. It feels fun but leads to pain. Then it offers more fun to relieve the pain — over and over again. Excuses are mental games that attempt to cover up sin with self-protecting justifications.

Sin is compelling and controlling. Its consequences are cruel. Christ came not to condone it, but to uncage its captives.

The fleeting pleasure of sin soon morphs into guilt’s ongoing, inner gnawing. Society says to celebrate the sin that is in your heart. Biblical Christianity says to renounce and turn away from it (repent).

Sin is life mismanagement. The cure is to surrender yourself in obedience to the free gift of Christ’s daily leadership. Sin makes mental health difficult. Much of our pain, discouragement, and heartbreak is caused by our own sin. The risen Jesus wants to untangle us from our mess.

Grace isn’t a pass to sin. It’s a path to freedom from sin. Will you daily walk its unmerited path to mental health, peace, and wholeness? Grace was never intended to enable guilt-free sinning, but to break sin’s bondage and set its captives free.

Repentance and forgiveness can make guilt melt, yet many people prefer to medicate it or deny it instead. Pride causes us to have trouble acknowledging our sins, being sorry for our sins, and turning away from our sins.

Relief from guilt doesn’t come by denial or self-medication. It comes by stopping the sin and receiving God’s forgiveness.

The results of freedom depend on the choices of the free. They can choose harmful thoughts and behaviors or helpful ones.

Folding in the face of temptation embraces fleeting fun and a fractured future full of guilt. Yet, repentance can bring restoration.

If you lie to others, you will lie to yourself. Then you’ll be stuck in meaningless mythology of your own making. It takes courage to obey your conscience and speak truth. If Christians emphasized attending to your conscience as much as attending church, the world would be a better place.

Anger presents retaliation as good and unkindness as justified. Jesus, however, said that we are to love and forgive one another.

Put this cap on your head: MSFH — More Sanity For Humanity

Mental health is inner wealth; more sanity for humanity!

Widely distributing guns while dulling people’s conscience and drumming up their anger, makes a dangerous society. Perhaps society would work better if people who can lose their temper didn’t carry guns.

For many years in America, black lives were seen as personal property. Today, prenatal lives are.

When society makes the most innocent form of human life disposable, it devalues every person’s life. All lives matter.

If you don’t respect your own life enough to click your seatbelt, it’s hard to respect other people’s lives. Both gun violence and prenatal violence break my heart.

Pride, wealth, and military might don’t make a country great. Kindness, justice, and respect that shows that all lives matter, do.

Make America again.
Make her kind within,
With love for all,
From womb till tomb.

Replace your tormenting thoughts with these hopeful thoughts

If churches gathered like Heaven, with people from “every kindred and every tribe,” their example would make the world better.

Rather than “follow your heart” train your heart to follow Jesus.

Jesus can make the rest of your life the best of your life. Daily follow and obey Him and see.

Nothing “happens” — everything is caused by something or someone.

The shortest distance between two political viewpoints is heart-felt kindness.

Titles sound nice, but are just words. Who needs them?

History isn’t a smorgasbord to only pick the parts that make you feel good.

If the preacher sat down and let there be holy silence and freedom to speak, the Holy Spirit might take over and surprise all.
