Welcome to the first edition of our weekly newsletter. It’s my prayer that you find each of these brief essays insightful, inspirational, instructional and intensely practical and beneficial.
Please be aware and forewarned that they are written from an unapologetic Christian perspective intended to give you biblical insight into psychology and practical living skills. The reason for this bias is simple. Good theology is requisite to good psychology. Theology is the study of God. Psychology is the study of man’s soul. If all mankind, that includes you and me, are created by God in His image, then it stands to reason that our lives are valued, fulfilled and blessed to the degree we reflect His image. Jesus Christ (Hebrews 1:3) is “the express image of His (God’s) Person”. He is incarnated word of God. He put on our flesh so that we might receive His spirit in order that we might reflect His glory.
I collect coins. Some coins in my collection are quite old. In fact, they are antiques dating back more than 2000 years. You might think their age would increase their worth. However, a numismatist assesses their value, not by their age, but by how detailed the relief or impression of the image is seen on the coin. Our value is not measured not the length of our days, but the depth of our lives; not by our age or accomplishments but by our reflection of God’s glory. How well is His image seen in you? Do others see “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27)?
