FREE counseling

8 01 2012

Paul said, “For to me, to live is Christ . . .” (Philippians 1:21). In Galatians 2:20, he said, “I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.” Since it is true that we no longer live, but Christ lives in us, let me ask you this question: If you want to get to know who you are, who are you going to have to get to know? Him! In other words, to discover your true identity, you will have to discover Him who alone is your life. This eliminates the need for analysis, self-actualization, and going back into memories of past experiences to “understand yourself.” When Paul said in Romans 7:15 AMP, “15For I do not understand my own actions [I am baffled, bewildered]. I do not practice or accomplish what I wish, but I do the very thing that I loathe [[a]which my moral instinct condemns].,” he didn’t go on to say, “I therefore need to go for counseling.” He merely recognized his condition of sin and death as revealed by God’s law and told us God’s solution: “Thanks be to God ­ through Jesus Christ our Lord!” (Romans 7:25).
