    • Which seems most important for you to learn?

    • What if you omitted any one?

    • Which could you apply to your life now? How?

  • How might your daily life change if you lived coram Deo sola scriptura?

  • How might your daily life be different if you lived coram Deo sola gratia?


Ministry implications

Ministry Implications

  • What is your approach to helping people, your map/model? Where did you learn it? Where could Scripture further shape it?

  • As you leave here today on track toward growth as a soul physician, what will you be doing differently as you further develop as a biblical counselor?

  • Rate your level of “what to know” for biblical counseling compared to ninety minutes ago, with 1 being “the same as when I entered,” and 10 being “incredibly higher”.
