Counseling – Romans 15

by on April 29, 2013

Counseling can seem very difficult and challenging. It is. But, the Bible declares in simple and understandable terms what God expects of us as we live together as a Church – The Church – The Body of Christ here on this earth. Now.

I am confident concerning you, my brethren, that

You also are full of goodness,

You are filled with all knowledge, and

You are able also to admonish one another.

From Romans 15:14

The Biblical approach to counseling is quite clear.

I. Christians are to be full of

Goodness: – the heart

  • Kindness
  • Care
  • Concern
  • Love
  • Grace
  • Healing

With an absence of:

  • Malice

 

II. Christians are to be filled with all

Knowledge: the head

  • The whole counsel of God
  • Doctrine
  • Scripture
  • The mind of Christ
  • A renewed mind

 

III. Christians are to be able to

Admonish: the voice

  • Expression
  • Encourage
  • Impart hope
  • Impart truth

 

IV. Christians are to counsel

One another: the community

  • Mutual care
  • Mutual responsibility
  • Mutual privilege
  • Mutual support
  • Mutual blessing

 

God’s plan – so simple – so profound.

God bless you as you fulfill this passage in your Christian walk.
