How would you counsel someone who is suffering? If you think about it are you getting it right as a Christian counseling Christians? Is that counseling biblical? We join Pastor David Crespo and look to God’s word on the topic, we turn to one Peter chapter two! Let’s listen in and be blessed by God!
1 Peter 2:17-25
17 Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.
Submission to Masters
18 Servants, be submissive to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the harsh. 19 For this is commendable, if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully. 20 For what credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before God. 21 For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for [a]us, leaving [b]us an example, that you should follow His steps:
22 “Who committed no sin,
Nor was deceit found in His mouth”;
23 who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously; 24 who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose [c]stripes you were healed. 25 For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and [d]Overseer of your souls.
a. 1 Peter 2:21 NU you
b. 1 Peter 2:21 NU, M you
c. 1 Peter 2:24 wounds
d. 1 Peter 2:25 Gr. Episkopos
