Welcome to Caring Like Christ! This five-part mini-series covers Biblical Counseling Basics. Video-driven, this series is a taste of what could happen in your life and your church through the Counsel of the Word. We hope you’ll want to know even more!
Biblical Counseling belongs in the church, don’t you agree? For nearly 2,000 years, Christians have comforted, encouraged, and challenged each other in truth and in love based on the Word of God. Nowadays, confusion reigns even among Christians. Many of today’s “Christian” self-help books and programs push man-centered philosophies, ignoring our greatest need: knowing God.
What Is Biblical Counseling?
Biblical Counseling is “the process in which believers seek to know, confront, strengthen, encourage, and disciple other believers to grow in their love for God and their neighbor, all for His glory,” says Elyse Fitzpatrick. Read Biblical Counseling Center’s description too. God is at the center of Biblical Counseling. His goal is changing us into the image of his Son so that we will glorify him.
Doesn’t it make sense that change is at the heart of Biblical Counseling as well? As a person grows in the likeness of Christ, their faithful living shows itself in the home, workplace, church, community, and the world.
God himself is the very first biblical counselor. Doesn’t this make perfect sense? Hear a couple of his counsels to Adam and Cain in Genesis 2 and Genesis 4. Biblical Counseling uses words motivated by love and deep concern. It also is goal-oriented. The goal: helping Christians live in a way that glorifies God through faithful service to Him. Does a person who’s biblically counseled find peace and contentment too? Yes. This is an outcome of a heart desiring to please God.
