We are far more broken than we are ready to admit, while in Christ, we are loved more deeply than we could possibly imagine.
The Healing Power of Grace
In this way, the gospel is like a mirror, showing us two simultaneous, opposite realities at the very same time. Biblical counseling, therefore, is aimed at affirming both realities, even while we seek to apply the healing power of grace to what is broken.
