One important aspect of biblical counseling is that it gives people hope. Hurting and broken people seek out hope in the midst of their circumstances. The world and biblical counselors, because of God’s Word, are able to give true hope. Biblical counselors are able to point these hurting people to the only hope that will not disappoint. This hope comes from knowing Christ and him crucified through the pages of Scripture.
