“Why do we do the things we do? Many people react to and are driven by these deep unspoken forces. They are strong and they dictate huge areas of our lives. And it is possible to be a good Christian and go to church services and sing the right songs and jump through the right hops and never let Jesus heal your soul”. (p118)
Woh…. As a Pastor I know this to be true in my own life, as well as those I interact with.
The deep forces, things like abuse, insecurity, rejection. These are the things which bring forth legalism, phariseeism, bitterness, overt submission, persecution complex, addictions.
Christ has set us free, he wants us to live lives of hope, joy and strength. We cant if we wont let Him heal us.
