Hi Pilgrim
Just thought I would let you know, my pastor’s sermon today had a lot of the same advice you gave me in your response.
Normally my pastor does expositional sermons. However, between him and another elder because they felt a need for the Church to hear a more topical subject, in a series they have been covering the subject of ‘Church Government.’
Today’s subject was ‘Church Discipline’ and the main text was Matt. 18:15-20. The reason why I am sharing you this, is not to get into the details of what he preached. Rather, I am always amazed at how many times God brings things up like this; that have a lot to do with something I am going through.
God is great!
