Sometime back a prominent Christian leader said (and I’m paraphrasing), “We must learn to act from what we know instead of what we feel. When Christians act from what they feel, they get into trouble.”
What do you think?
On the surface, it sounds like good advice. If my feelings are telling me to rob a bank, then I’d better go with what I know: Don’t rob the bank.
But are these really our only choices? As followers of Jesus Christ, don’t we have a third alternative? Can’t we take our tangled up feelings to Jesus, get at why we feel the way we do, and receive from Jesus the transformation that lines our emotions up with His truth?
