Fringe benefits: psychological and physical health

The list of dances in the left column below reads like a description of psychologically healthy people. Any counselor who helps people increase these will make a very good living, but we can begin the dances even without a counselor if we listen for the SYNC rhythms.

    God's Game-changers

 

God created the universe

 

God launched his strategy to bless and restore the world, starting with Abraham and his descendants

 

Jesus' launched the era of "liberating control" by his teaching, death, and resurrection

 

Jesus sent his Spirit to empower his followers to be more than they could be and do more than they could do

 

Jesus presented his own blood as the perfect, final sacrifice on the heavenly altar 

 

Stephen was executed and Jesus' other followers were driven out of Jerusalem

 

(Hasn't happened yet) King Jesus will return to perfect everything, and we already see some beautiful signs of that through the Spirit he sent ahead

The rhythms are our "reality checks." If we move with them, we are in touch with the reality of God's game-changing actions. Those are his gifts to us, and it is a good thing he gave them because we could never have imagined some of them, let alone caused them or earned them.

 

Anchored in these realities, we become the picture of psychological health, and our bodies know it. Our glands work much better when we are joyful, when we belong, when we have purpose, etc.  Significant, forgiving, hopeful people are healthier than frustrated, bitter, and fearful people.
