Where do we go when we need “fixed?”
When our body has weakened to a point it needs specific attention we head to a doctor’s office or when it is really bad, the hospital. We know we can’t cure the ailment on our own anymore and it is going to require the medical knowledge of a doctor or nurse.
So where do we go when our soul needs “fixed?” CHURCH is where we should go. Too often I think that people think church buildings are museums, and full of perfect people and they choose to go where they perceive more broken people are: places where they can find alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling. Places that have things that don’t heal the sick soul but just deaden it. When what they really need is a soul overhaul, operation, whatever, to scrape out the infection of sin and restore health.
I don’t know about you, but I am BROKEN. My soul needs constant fixing. I am like that pesky car that always needs to go in for a tune-up. That sick kid at the school always on antibiotics. I hope that when people see me at church, or headed there, or when they see me in a class, or in this blog that they don’t see someone “good”, but someone in constant need of prayer, confession, and healing. I need me some Jesus medicine!
That is why I take my daily dose of Bible time, listen to Christian music, paint for Jesus, pray constantly. I take my thyroid and crazy lady/happy pills daily for my body. Why wouldn’t I take my soul meds too???? I mean that is a big ole duh!
You know what…how cool would it be if we could have Jesus in a little oxygen tank we drag around?? I know that sounds silly, but really! Breathe Him in, everyone sees our need and broken-ness, we have to think about it constantly, everyone sees we are turning to the right healing. I like this idea!
I know. Crazy. I better make sure I take my meds: body and soul. 🙂 How about you?
