We know that some counselees do the right things for the wrong reasons. While we are glad they want to change, we need to direct them to change for the right reasons. In this session, Rob Green teaches a four-step process to ensure that counselees (and counselors!) keep God at the center of the counseling. The four steps are: (1) understanding how God wants us to comprehend his character, (2) understanding how the fear of the Lord is properly understood in the Bible, (3) understanding how the fear of the Lord impacts behavior, and (4) applying the concept of the fear of the Lord to specific counseling situations.
This is a session from the Biblical Counseling Training Conference hosted by Faith Church in Lafayette, Indiana.
People are looking for the hope that there are answers for their hurts, their difficulties, and the challenges they face. Since 1985, the Biblical Counseling Training Conference has been equipping ministry professionals and lay leaders to skillfully, confidently, and lovingly minister God's Word to those looking for answers.
