Using God's Word as a Sword in Christian Counseling


Published on

The Word of God is a sword, but Christians often wield it to cut others up. There is a greater purpose and counselors can minister life and hope through the skillful use of biblical truths.

Ephesians 6:17: "Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God."

Hebrews 4:12: "For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart."
