Hello! I want to share these quotes I like from the book Consider Your Counsel by Bob W. Kellemen published by New Growth Press. If you want to support the author, click here to purchase the book.
“With one foot, we enter deeply and personally into our counselee’s story, situation, and soul. With the other foot, we pivot into and journey together to Christ’s story of redemptive hope.”
“All comfort is ultimately sourced in God. The flip side of that is to say that worldly comfort—comfort not sourced in God—is ultimately empty, vain, hollow comfort.”
“…the difference between biblical counseling and secular counseling is that we embed every aspect of human experience and human nature within our relationship to God.”
“Biblical counseling is the personal ministry of the Word where we explore together the specific biblical passages and scriptural principles that best relate to this particular person.”
“Biblical counselors are to be biblical comforters because God is the Father of all comfort.”
“…this is the ultimate goal of our counseling—helping our counselees, with whatever trauma, trouble, and turmoil they are facing, to believe that God is good even when life is bad, and then to entrust their souls to their good, good Father.”
“Emotions are not to be demeaned but are instead God-designed core aspects of the image of God in us. Biblical counselors value the God-designed role that emotions play in our Christian lives and relationships.”
“As biblical counselors, we seek to be Christlike counselors—full of both grace and truth. We grow in this relational competency as we wisely and carefully combine comprehensive data collection with compassionate soul connection.”
