Marked by Christ: Is there hope with mental illness?

Emily avoided the label of “mental illness” for many years. She went through elementary school depressed and bullied. By middle school, suicidal thoughts crept into her mind. She believed she could get better if she tried hard enough, but she couldn’t do it. She overreacted to little incidents, sometimes hyperventilating, and said mean things without knowing why. Her life spiraled into periods of manic behavior, and her cold heart refused to let anyone get close. Her reality became confused, and she was increasingly unsure of what was real and what was not.

David Platt – Why many Christians are deceived

We are reposting this important message from David Platt today:
David Platt itickets.comEverything would be different in these men’s lives because of their encounters with Jesus. Everything. Which is why we know, that people who profess to be christians, but whose lives look just like the rest of the world’s are deceived. All kinds of people who supposedly made a decision, prayed a prayer, signed a card, walked an aisle, accepted Jesus into their hearts, but their lives don’t look any different. They say they’re christian, but the reality is they don’t know this Christ (of the Bible). Because when you know this Christ everything begins to change in your life.

I heard one precher put it this way: Imagine I got here late this morning. Imagine these guys finished leading us in musical worship and then a little video came on but it was just a blank stage and 5, 10, 15 minutes go by, you’re sitting there and it’s awkward. And al of a sudden, I come running out on stage and I say, „I am sorry I am here late. I was driving over here on the Interstate and had a flat tire. I got out and fixed the flat tire, but I accidentally stepped out into the middle of the Interstate and this Mack truck hit me head on and it hurt. But, I got up, and finished fixing the tire, got into the car and I drove here. So I apologize for being late”.

Now, if this was the story I had told you, you would know one of two things: Either (1) I am lying or (2) I am very deceived. And you know that because when someone gets hit my a Mack truck, they look different than they did before. Based on that reality, I think I am on pretty safe ground in saying that when a person comes face to face with God in the flesh, the Savior King and sovereign Lord, and he reaches down into your heart and saves you from the clutches of sin and sin, you’re going to look different. You’re gonna look really different. Everything changes when you follow „this” King.
