In this episode, the hosts discuss cultivating some counseling methods with the analogy of a farmer, which as biblical counselors we're taking God's Word and sowing it with our counselee's, and the importance of being encouraged through engaging our peers with prayer, and God's Word.
- Discussion based on Ch. 13 of Jeremy’s new book, “biblical counseling basics”
- As Counselor’s we’re bringing access to a myriad of identities; we could be an ambassador for another kingdom, we could be being used as an instrument of mercy and grace.
- Biblical counseling is a process of learned dependency.
- We're farmers in those moments in counseling; it's God who brings the harvest in someone's life and how he chooses to use the seeds we plant as biblical counselors.
- As biblical counselors, we have something that even the most renown scholar in psychology doesn't have, we have the Holy Spirit. And he is even more committed to the people we counsel, so we don't need to be doubtful in our ability.
- As a farmer, we're focusing more on the scriptures than the skills.
