Biblical counseling and the love of God

Author: Foppe Vander Zwaag
Publisher: Grand Rapids, MI : Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, 2001.
Dissertation: M. Div. Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary 2001
The love of God our heavenly Father, as it is revealed to sinful man in the Holy Scriptures in Jesus Christ, is sufficient for all our spiritual and mental needs. The great problem of most people, even of many Christians, is that they are problem-focused instead of God-focused. Biblical counseling, not matter what the 'problem' is, must always begin with God and our relationship with him. The Holy Spirit, using sinful men and women as instruments, delights to show the things of Christ, who is the express image of God. Effective and practical scriptural counseling is provided guidance in the life of sinners as they are directed to look to, follow, and imitate Jesus Christ's loving obedience to His Father.
