Wellness of the soul

Message Body:
In church we’ve had frequent discussion lately on the wellness of the soul and how the only way to acknowledge where we stand in that aspect is by more or less admitting to ourselfs past situations that had shaped us into who we are today, whether that be good or bad. But my question is, once we’ve made that known to ourselfs, what precautions are needed in order to take that step forward to “heal” the soul?

  1. Joeleonna,
    The teaching of Soul Wellness is the promotion of overcoming life problems such as cancer, chronic pain, stress, depression, addiction, etc. through education, self-examination, confrontation, introspection and self-adjustments. The common denominator here is self-adjustments. I liken it to lifting yourself up by pulling up on your bootstraps. No matter how hard you pull, it is impossible to lift yourself.
    I am not against honest self-examination to evaluate where you are, or learning, or facing the truth or looking inwardly, etc. The problem is that we cannot heal ourselves. That power does not lie within us, but beyond us, in Christ alone. Furthermore, the keeping is not dependent upon us but we are dependent on Him to keep us. My grip is not equal to the demands of life but His grip cannot be broken.
    This is the promise of God that He gives eternal live to those who believe in Him. Believing in Him simply means to rely on, trust, stand on Him and His promise and not on ourselves.
    There are some things that we can do that will enhance our relationship with Him. First, we must be born again. Without this step, nothing else will work. (John 3:7). Second, we are to obey His word, the Bible, to learn of Him and His ways. Third, we should follow the Lord in believer’s baptism by immersion. Fourth, we should become a part of an New Testament Church, that aligns itself with the Lord and His Word. Fifth, visit the Lord often in prayer. These are some of the basics that will enrich our lives but the changing and the keeping belong to the Lord. The believing and responding is up to us.
