156: Does the Gospel Speak to Mental and Physical Health?

Imagine your pastor addressing the congregation’s growing waistlines from the pulpit. Or your faith community helping you heal your fears and past hurts. Is Christianity only about our spiritual health, or does the Gospel speak to mental and physical health as well?

In this episode of the Lifeschool Podcast, we talk about the beautiful results of having and believing in a more holistic gospel… One that speaks into all of life: mind, body, and soul.

It can seem scary at first to lovingly address the health of others. But we live in a world that is literally sick and dying for a greater love to show up and offer hope. Will you allow the gospel to bring you into those places in others lives?

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • How the overarching story of God’s interaction with mankind in the Bible is completely holistic in nature.
  • Jesus’ surprisingly succinct and holistic explanation of the Law and Commandments.
  • Why having a more holistic experience of the gospel sends us out on mission.
  • How caring for yourself is often necessary when caring for others.
  • Practical steps to begin caring for your physical, spiritual, and mental health (in light of the gospel) right now.
