What You'll Discover in this Episode:
God’s Sufficiency for Godly Living
Training up the next generation of Biblical Counselors
How is God’s grace sufficient for godly living? What is the difference between works of the flesh and works of the Spirit?
In this episode of the Biblical Counseling Podcast, Pastor Jeff Christianson with his wife Jennifer explain how the Christian life starts with grace when someone first becomes a Christian (Justification, Eph. 2:8-9) and continues throughout all of life (Sanctification, Gal. 2:20). God is at work in His children and empowers them by the Holy Spirit that He graciously gives them. Paul is a great example of someone who did many works for God and they were done by the grace of the Holy Spirit working in him. God’s grace is the wind in our sail as we step out in faith, in obedience to His Word. Without the grace of Jesus we are unable to do anything of eternal value. “For apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5b).
In this podcast, Pastor Jeff Christianson and Jennifer help us understand the difference between works of the flesh and works of the Spirit. A work of the flesh can be defined as someone who does something in their own strength. Instead we must start with a humble dependence on God. It is God who empowers us for ministry and the work of Biblical Counseling. “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” (Gal. 2:20). We are God’s vessel to offer Christ and His Word.
