"Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls" —Jeremiah 6:16
"Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness." —2 Timothy 2:15-16
This book is about a Christ-centered approach to nurture the spiritual life of believers and to equip them to fight the good fight of faith and thereby confront problems of living through exercising faith in Christ and the Word. This book reveals the innate sinfulness of problem-centered counseling, shows how it leads Christians into feeding the flesh and quenching the Spirit, and gives reasons why Christians must abandon the problem-centered approach.
In person-to-person soul care, we urge believers to do three things: (1) abandon problem-centeredness; (2) embrace the biblical truth about the role of problems; (3) encourage one another to become Christ-centered on a daily basis.
We pray that those in the church who are maturing in the faith through the trials of life and are walking daily in the Lord will be encouraged to minister to others as the needs and opportunities arise.
