Learning to forgive one another will keep your emotions healthy!
Improving our Spiritual Understanding
Theme: Deal with Negative Emotions!
Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled (Heb 12:15
Having received Jesus Christ into your heart as your Lord & Saviour, you have to LEARN to walk diligently with the Holy Spirit. Bro Paul admonishes us: This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh( Gal 5:16
As a psychiatrist, I can tell you that many people harbour negative emotions knowingly & unknowingly, and suffer the consequences. Negative emotions are extremely destructive to the person harbouring them, besides displeasing God. As per our memory verse, BITTERNESS is at the root of many other negative emotions such as anger, hatred, envy, resentment, vengeance etc. Bitterness usually result from prolonged unforgiveness. Many people live in denial of the presence of these negative emotions in their heart, even within the body of Christ (the Church). Believe me, these emotions deprive the person of love, joy, peace etc, called the fruit of the Spirit( Gal 5:22
Dealing with these negative emotions or learning to drive away these emotions needs spiritual understanding and requires you being honest, open, transparent, sincere and truthful with yourself and others. Only the LIGHT in the words of God in your heart can help you to EXPOSE these emotions. Light exposes!
Unfortunately, many people prefer to HIDE and remain in ignorance. Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ says: And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. ( John 3:19
PRAYER: For every one reading this message, receive the grace to deal with negation emotions in your heart in Jesus mighty name, Amen!
Yours in the Lord. Ben Bassey, Iyobosa, & the MOW family
