GET OVER IT: Mental Health
Romans 8:37-39 NLT
37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
BIG IDEA: YOU MATTER TO GOD.
1 Peter 5:6–7 (NLT)
6 So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. 7 Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.
THOUGHT 01 – THEOLOGY MATTERS.
2 Corinthians 1:21-22 (NLT)
It is God who enables us, along with you, to stand firm for Christ. He has commissioned us, 22 and he has identified us as his own by placing the Holy Spirit in our hearts as the first installment that guarantees everything he has promised us.
Romans 8:1 (NLT)
So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.
Luke 24:17 (NIV)
17 He asked them, “What are you discussing together as you walk along?”
They stood still, their faces downcast.
THOUGHT 02 – COMMUNITY MATTERS.
James 1:27 (NLT)
27 Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.
1 Corinthians 12:22-26 (NLT)
22 In fact, some parts of the body that seem weakest and least important are actually the most necessary. 23 And the parts we regard as less honorable are those we clothe with the greatest care. So we carefully protect those parts that should not be seen, 24 while the more honorable parts do not require this special care. So God has put the body together such that extra honor and care are given to those parts that have less dignity. 25 This makes for harmony among the members, so that all the members care for each other. 26 If one part suffers, all the parts suffer with it, and if one part is honored, all the parts are glad.
THOUGHT 03 – SCIENCE MATTERS.
Luke 5:31 (NLT)
31 Jesus answered them, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do.
