The aim of this article is to provide some indication of the fruitfulness of exegetical study of one particular text, 1 Peter, for the counselor's task. It wants to motivate the counselor to integrate ever more completely the study of Scripture with pastoral care. The author discusses the Christian's position in this world, suffering, the church as household of God, and the task of elders.
