What Do I Do If Someone Shares a Big Sin?

In this video, Pastor of Soul Care, Jeff Ballard shares how we can walk with someone who shares a deep sin with us or our group, including asking the following questions:

  • What’s it like for them?
  • What are they experiencing?
  • What help can I offer them?
  • How would I want to be cared for?

And he offers practical recommendations, such as:

  1. Check your facial expression. And check your heart: are you surprised at sin?
  2. Thank them for sharing. Acknowledge that it’s hard to share.
  3. Affirm your care
  4. Pray for them right there
  5. Ask them, “What can I do to help?”
  6. Follow-up
