Discipline in the Fellowship, Part Two

Matthew 18:15-17  (ID: 1130)

Church discipline brings glory to God as his people obey his word, but it is often overlooked and misunderstood. It isn't just the business of pastors and teachers, but the responsibility of every member of the congregation, seeking the restoration of sinning members and the purity of the fellowship.

If Your Brother Sins Against You

15“If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. 16But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. 17If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.
