The Church Needs An Emotional Healing


Luke 4:17-21 (KJV)

17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,

18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

Identify

The first thing we need to do is identify the problem, and realize the need for inner healing. I like to deal with some of the symptoms of emotional wound:

1. There's often a sense of inner pain and hurt that doesn't seem to go away.

2. It's easy to become irritable with others, even if they aren't doing anything wrong!

3. There is a low tolerance issue with others, what you expect and demand from them.
