What do you do with a counselee who continues to give in to a particular sin, even though they have joined a support group, prayed for deliverance, asked Jesus to bind Satan and has now been in counseling with you for some time? Today, many think that God will obey for them or that others should keep them from sin with strict accountability. Though the teaching of mortification is almost extinct in the church today, it is a crucial doctrine that the counselee needs in their fight against sin. This workshop will seek to highlight this important element of change and how God can grace your counselee to take the radical steps necessary to "put to death the deeds of the flesh" and love Christ more (Romans 8:12).
This is a session from the Biblical Counseling Training Conference hosted by Faith Church in Lafayette, Indiana.
People are looking for the hope that there are answers for their hurts, their difficulties, and the challenges they face. Since 1985, the Biblical Counseling Training Conference has been equipping ministry professionals and lay leaders to skillfully, confidently, and lovingly minister God's Word to those looking for answers.
