Today Trevin Wax at The Gospel Coalition wrote about CCEF counselor Mike Emlet’s book, Crosstalk: Where Life and Scripture Meet.

“Michael Emlet encourages pastors and church leaders to approach people as “saints, sufferers, and sinners.” This categorization helps the counselor know whether to turn to Scriptural passages that remind a person of their identity in Christ, console them in the dark day of suffering, or confront them for their unrepentant sins.”

Wax goes on to provide both a helpful summary of Emlet’s categories and how those categories are relevant when we counsel. Read the rest of the discussion at The Gospel Coalition.
