Matthew 18:15-18

"Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. ’ And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector."

"Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."

Encouraging Words...

Jesus established for us a very clear and effective model; for discipline and reconciliation in His body, His church. There is no room for gossip and slander, which only destroys the fellowship of the community, but there are dire consequences for not recognizing our sins against each other and repenting from them. Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
