Getting Healthy Emotionally…

During our first targeted prayer session together I emphasized focusing on emotional healing during our time together. Our session was divided equally between inward and outward focuses. Emotional healing, I believe, is the really good stuff that God wants for us. If a school of ships are moving together and one has internal engine problems it cannot help colliding with the other ships.

We talk much of outreach and impacting the Jewish community, but not much of our inward readiness to absorb such a revival if it does come. Perhaps G-d is biding His time until we are a bit healthier? Emotional Quotient (EQ) is talked of much today and is defined as a measurement of a person's ability to monitor his or her emotions, to cope with pressures and demands, and to control his or her thoughts and actions.

Our emotional quotient effects our ability to evaluate and effect situations and relationships with others---in short, our emotional immaturity prevents us from entering into and maintaining high trust (healthy) friendships.

Some of the experts have suggested that most of the emotional problems among believers stem from two things: the failure to understand, receive, and live out God's unconditional grace and forgiveness and the failure to give out that unconditional grace and forgiveness to others.

Perhaps this is why the unmerciful slave in Matthew's parable (Matthew 18:21-35) was unable to release his fellow slave from debt. The unmerciful slave never fully understood how much he himself was released from his own debt; he never really believed that he was forgiven and, therefore, was unable to truly release his fellow servant.

Becoming a healthy congregation means becoming an emotionally healthy congregation. We've all noticed that when we became believers our problems didn't vanish. In fact, in some respects they got worse. Why? Because there was no more running away and self-deception. The Holy Spirit purposely brought our problems into focus so that we could bring them to God finally and deal with them together.

Let's pray for a functional theology. A head theology is not the answer. We need a theology of the Good News of God's awesome grace and forgiveness that penetrates deep into our souls (emotions) and affects how we walk and act and relate to one another. I know I need it.

Shalom, Ned
