Three very bad things happened as a result of the Fall (in the Garden of Eden):

–Division between God and the human race.
–Division between humans and other humans.
–Division within each person.

And since the Fall, many have labored passionately to remove the divisions and brokenness between humans and within humans, and to bring wholeness for each person and for the human race. But WHOLENESS is not a method, it’s a PERSON — a person named Jesus. And until estrangement with God is dealt with, all other efforts to bring wholeness will ultimately fail.

But the glorious Gospel, via the Blood of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit, has made a way, and offered an unshakable foundation upon which all other efforts at wholeness can be built. That is why we must never, in the midst of our efforts, neglect the preaching of the Gospel: Calling lost human beings to the foot of the cross, where they can encounter a loving Savior, repent of their sins, and be saved and made whole.

“For I am not ashamed of the Gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes:” (Romans 1:16)

“Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God.” (Psalm 42:5-6)

Sometimes the only way out of a foggy valley is the thing that, at the time, we feel least capable of doing.  But when we press through, and remind ourselves of the good things He has done in our lives, and praise Him, we often find ourselves rising above the gloom and depression — and joy breaks through.
