Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this message, Steve Gregg explores Jesus' teachings in Matthew 18:15-17 regarding conflict resolution within the church. He emphasizes the importance of privacy and mercy in dealing with a brother who has sinned against us. Gregg encourages us to seek the involvement of respected witnesses when trying to establish the truth of a matter, and to trust in the process of church discipline when necessary. Ultimately, the goal is to restore the person in question to a place of right standing with the church and with God.
