What You Can Do to Help: How do we Biblically and lovingly engage those who are suffering? What is a Biblical approach to helping those who are hurting? Peeking behind diagnostic descriptions, we will seek first to understand the inner world of the sufferer, by knowing them and finding out what it is like to be them. The goal is to know the person so well that it is easy to start saying “we.” Second, we will seek to make the gospel meaningful to sufferers by offering them God’s comfort and strength amidst their suffering.
