"For I will restore health to you, and your wounds I will heal, declares the Lord, because they have called you an outcast: ‘It is Zion, for whom no one cares!'"
Luke 4:18,19 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
If you happen to come across an iceberg, only 10% of its form is visible to the naked eye. The 90% is deeply hidden in the dark icy waters. In Pete Scazzero’s book Emotionally Healthy Spirituality, he uses an iceberg as a metaphor for daily life. This fact also applies Christians and non-Christians. The 10 percent represents our visible public persona. We try to represent ourselves as nice, friendly and respectful people. For Christians, we want others to see us as morally good people who attend church and participate regularly. For many of us, the 90% remains hidden and untouched by Christ. It consists of our private pains, wounds and many other unprocessed emotional issues. We try to ignore or hide it, but it will eventually impact the surface of our lives. This was the experience of Pastor Scazzero.
