Paul believed that all maturing Christians are called at some time to counsel others that God has providentially brought into their lives. He expressed confidence in this principle in Romans 15:14, I am myself satisfied about you, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge and able to instruct one another.
Here is a practical resource that will give you confidence to share the same wisdom that Paul applied from the Word and the same power from the Holy Spirit upon which he relied when counseling others. Read what Paul taught about sin and temptation, renewing the mind and walking by the Spirit, women in ministry, race relations, the place for pharmaceuticals in the life of a Christian, and much more.
