Good Morning All
Drum roll, please. The cure for mental illness is?
I listened to “the praying medic” online. He is born again and has some books published about fast “on-the-spot” prayers that have given much comfort and healing to people while he is with them for a short time in the ambulance. They are very effective. He loves the King.
He encountered a person with mental illness and was flummoxed as to how to reach them. Jesus gave him the answer.
“The cure for mental illness is LOVE,” he heard. He grimaced. It was a facial reaction of pain, not disgust or disbelief. He realized how massive His answer was.
Love is something that must be worked into us, from the inside out, as our ever present Holy Spirit mows us down with His compassion for others WHICH IS ENDLESS. I Cor 13 tells us all about love, the ultimate personality of our Father God. It is NOT a quick fix. We are put in the fire as we grow to share His heart and then take the actions He wants so that we influence people, regions, even the world.
“The object and purpose of our instruction and charge is LOVE, which springs from a pure heart and a clear conscience and sincere faith.” 1 Timothy 1:5
What are we to do in the process of learning to love?
“…accept in faith God’s administration and divine training that is IN faith (which is leaning of our entire human personality on God in absolute trust and confidence).” 1 Timothy 1:4
We must stay in the fire in faith with Jesus as He trains us to LOVE.
