The question is: why don't we believe it? Why do so many followers of Jesus Christ act as if there were no cure, as if there were no good doctor, as if our situation were hopeless and our God, helpless? I suspect it's partly because we don't want to confront the fact that there is a connection between the crisis in our lives and the condition of our souls. While we may not always be the cause of all our problems, we are sometimes pretty good at getting in the way of the cure.
If I've learned anything in 25 years of ministry, it's that it's far more important to treat people right than to be right. Pride isn't worth the price. Saving face isn't as important as saving grace. Repentance is a very good exercise for your heart muscle. And despite all the evidence to the contrary, I still believe that reconciliation is possible. So, even if you're mad at me and won't tell me why, I'm not going to give up on you, even when my clergy colleagues tell me I'm crazy.
