We need to reach out to the troubled youth. This can be done if we create a positive atmosphere within the community. We need to teach the community that with God all things are possible and that all our needs are met. “We need to love our neighbors as we love ourselves” Matt.22:39. As a result people will see and feel the love of God through our actions.. 18:20).
Counselors consistently encourage the client to grow, change and develop in ways that can promote healthy relationships (ACA code of ethics. 2006). Throughout the course of counseling goals are set according to client's needs. It is desired the client will become whole, mentally stable and spiritually mature to enable a more successful in life. To obtain maturity, obedience and hopefully a new or a closer relationship with Christ is the ultimate goal in Christian counseling.
Children are our neighbors whom we are called to love. Christians enrich our welcoming of children to a life of faith by holding together these diverse perspectives on whom they are. Because they are gifts of God, for example, we will respect their dignity and bring joy, laughter, and a sense of obligation into teaching and forming them in home and congregation. Because they—like all the baptized—are sinners as well as saints and in need of instruction, we will emphasize the vital role of families in instilling the habits and practices of faithful living, and we will develop substantial congregational programs of faith formation. We will introduce them to good examples, mentors, and stories of faith and service and help them discern their callings.
In Dave Earley’s book Prayer: the Timeless Secret of High-Impact Leaders, a straight forward prayer plan is laid out for even the most sophomoric of students to follow so that they may develop a stronger relationship with Christ. Earley lays out nine disciplines that will engage the Christian to develop an impactful and consistent prayer practice to grow their faith. He illustrates that men and women who have historically been strong pray-ers, have been able to transform their ministries and the lives of countless Christians. Prayer is the culmination of their stories and practices that Earley uses as the foundation for his nine disciplines. Summary Earley uses scripture to derive nine discipline principles for high-impact Christian leaders.
My first reason for wanting to be confirmed is to understand God more fully and be come not only a better man by the experiences but a better catholic and during the process I wish to become a complete Christian, to help myself and help others, to help heal and be faithful. My confirmation will help will help me understand what It means to be a Christian, and how to live the life in my Christian community. I think confirmation will help me in making many decisions ahead of me in my life and understand more fully the teachings of the church.
I am committed to my Christian beliefs since I based my knowledge in the Bible. (Cosgrove, 2006) The Bible is a book where you find the guidance for all humans to live in harmony with their environment. This book also gives prophetic information of events that are happening and will happen. So too are the moral rules for human rights so at the same are not violated. It is a complete book in which you can find word, by word that give you life.
It is with great importance that I continue to grow and learn as I walk my spiritual path. Attaining all that I possibly can through my education and being able to be a vessel to assist others. I must strengthen my theological background as I continue with life, this is necessary for me if I want to be a good shepherd and counselor. God has placed me at this point for a reason, and I believe that is to grow closer to Him. * Action If I was speaking with a friend, I would most definitely tell them to keep God at the forefront of their lives.
I know that the superior academic instruction I could receive at Calvin College would be just what I am looking for to achieve a meaningful understanding of the cultural and spiritual context in which we live so I can make known the infinite love, mercy, and grace of Christ. I hope as a student, I can be one who challenges my peers to work toward their full potential, and I hope that they can challenge me to do the same by always encouraging me to practice a life of service, and continue to help make my faith my own. To me, the academic and spiritual opportunities that Calvin College offers are equally important to me. As believers, whatever we do should be done for the Lord. I hope that as a student at Calvin I would be able to encourage others because others have encouraged and strengthened me in this aspect.
True Christianity, is what most of the followers of Jesus Christ want to experience on daily basis. Some say that true Christianity must be achieved by hard work, good deeds, control of body and mind; not faith alone, but good works are needed for God’s justification. Wesley in turn will say, "Why, what signifies the form of godliness?" we readily answer, Nothing, if it be alone. But the absence of the form signifies much.
