The first and greatest commandment along with the second like it can be boiled down to a single word; love. To paraphrase these commands, we are to love God with all of our heart, soul, and mind; and to love others as ourselves. Biblical counseling helps us to love both God and others. As counselors, we draw close to God as we study His word and apply His truth. As the gospel is revealed to us, we see the immeasurable love that God has for us as we revisit the cross and the sacrifice Jesus made for each of us.

We have to understand that God is the only one that can help us seek our true purpose. "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11).

Also, this epistle seems more personal because Paul speaks about himself more than in any other epistle (it seems to me).

There are many other verses that engulf our hearts in warmth and love for the word of God and people of God.
Our Journey to God’s Glory I have always been fascinated by the image of God in man. So, the idea that that image carries with it some of God’s glory isn’t surprising. Every one of us is born in God’s image. (Gen 1:26 New International Version) That image reflects God’s glory through us here on earth. If you think of God’s garden with man and woman in it, as a perfect depiction of God’s image reflecting his glory through his creation.
