We believe that the ability to provide spiritual guidance and counseling is a God given gift that is enhanced and developed through education, training, life experience, and practice. It is one of the attributes of the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit, as He rested on His Son, Jesus Christ. The prophet Isaiah described the Spirit of the Lord, as He would rest on Jesus Christ, the coming Messiah, in Isaiah 11:2 “The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and strength, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.”
The Bible also teaches us that those who believe in Jesus Christ have His Spirit in them, the Holy Spirit, who is the spirit of wisdom and understanding, counsel and strength, knowledge and the fear of the Lord. Ephesians 1:13,14 “In Him (Christ), you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation, having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory”. We are therefore confident that with the help and guidance of the Holy Spirit, our staff can offer spiritual guidance and counseling to their clients, who in turn would greatly benefit from a counseling experience that is guided by the Spirit of God and is based on Biblical principles of living.
