Help remove the smoke screen and the deal with the actual problems. When we are working with students we don’t want to talk at them and give them a list of verses. Talk with them, connect the dots in their life and find out where the holes are. Take some time and get to know them: their family background, personalities, what makes them tick, etc… Use the funnel approach, start with broad questions and narrow it down to find out what they think about the topic.  Tell me why you’re hurting, what’s on your heart and mind.  When did this start, how long have you been involved in this?  Tell me what you are thinking and doing before you do this?  Is it something that you did wrong or was done to you?  Name it for them and ask. What is the sin specifically, to what degree is their struggle? (Ex: Did they just try alcohol or are they drinking every day.) What is causing them to go there, not the symptoms? Discovery Method: A+B=C. A series of questions that gets them to name the answer.  What do you think is hindering your walk? What does God call bitterness? What do you need to do?
