About Study Cards

IBCD has designed these Study Cards as a resource to assist counselors as they engage in one‐another care in the local church. Each card is derived from specific, relevant counseling passages. These cards are meant to serve as a visual reminder of the divine truths that biblical counselors communicate to those they counsel. We've also collected additional resources and materials that counsellees can access on ibcd.org as well as training for counselors on these particular topics. You can also purchase packs of cards to have on hand for whenever or wherever you care for one-another.

The Areopagus

This IBCD Study Card was developed to provide a simple way to reflect on several truths found in Acts 17 when faced with anxiety.

As biblical counselors, we are aware of the power of the Gospel to transform lives. Paul may be presenting the Gospel here in Acts to unbelievers, however, one of the most important things we can share with anyone stuck in the mire of anxiety is that they have a loving Father and that he is intimately concerned with their world.

Consider Him

This IBCD Study Card was developed to provide a simple way to reflect on several truths found in Hebrews 3 when struggling to persevere in the midsts of trials that we face.

Hebrews is a book written for people who desperately need to persevere. In the church of the first century, new believers struggled significantly with a variety of trials and tribulations. Christ’s followers in the twenty-first century struggle with hardship too. Though the difficulties they endure may not compare in significance; Christians still become weary, lose faith, and potentially move away from Christ as a result.

Yours They Were

This IBCD Study Card was developed to provide a simple way to reflect on several truths found in John 17 when faced with a prodigal child.

Oftentimes, when it comes to the salvation of our children, we find that our hope is based on one of two things; our performance as parents or our children’s response to our competency. Imagine the immense guilt when these children reject the Lord. Grief wavers between having failed miserably as a parent or the eternal destruction that seemingly awaits our child. Both of these beliefs bring about fear, deep pain, and profound regret. This Study Card highlights the truths found in Jesus’ prayer for his people and offers comfort for parents as they pray for their wayward children.

Anger

This IBCD Study Card was developed to provide a simple way to reflect on several truths found in James 4 when struggling with Anger.

Anger is a concept that can be difficult to put into words. It is, however, not quite as difficult to observe! You can tell when someone is angry. You know when you are angry. But why do we act this way? James 4 is quite helpful in articulating common characteristics of our anger. It also provides valuable solutions for sinful anger. When we are tempted to respond to people or circumstances with sinful anger, it is the renewal of our minds with biblical truths that empowers us to walk in grace and humility. This Study Card directs our attention to why we get angry, but it also reminds of the way out.
