Pastor Dave Clear
Galatians 6:1; Matthew 18:15-22

Three Kinds of Church Community:

1. Automatically exclude the wandering one – that would be the Church of the Amputation.

2. Automatically seek out the wandering ones – that would be the Church of the Ambulance.

3. Have no plan at all – that would be the Church of the apathetic.

Everything in Mattnew 18 falls under the theme of restoration.

In this story (Matthew 18:11-14), which is the preface for church discipline,

1. He engages in a conflicting dialogue (v. 12)

2. He points out a problematic dilemma (v.12)

3. He asserts an ongoing difficulty (v.12)
