“What I’m really struggling with is the consequence of my sin. I know that sin has consequences and I have to live with mine. I’ve been reading 1 Peter 2:20 and it seems to say that no ‘credit’ is given in God’s eyes for enduring the natural consequences of my own sin. Can you help me understand this and apply it to my life?”
How would you answer someone coming to you for counsel with this question? Counselors must be able to explain how suffering that arises from one’s own sin can still lead to God’s glory and our good. This booklet explores how to help the weak and fainthearted endure suffering by humbly submitting to God’s will in all circumstances.
