HFW: Matthew 18:15-20

We're working through a study this summer to celebrate Ephesians 3:10:

So that the manifold wisdom of God might be made known through the church to rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.

This series will run from June 22-August 30, with four readings per week.

This week (7), the first reading is Matthew 18:15-20. After reading this text, answer the following questions, then you can watch the video for a 5:00 thought from the text. (I recommend you work in the text first before watching the video. However, be aware, the video is not intended to be the back of an algebra book--supplying answers to the questions--but rather, is just sharing some thoughts from the text.)

    1. What is the reason for a loving confrontation?
    2. How should I approach the person at first?
    3. What does the passage mean by “witnesses?” Do they need to have seen the sin too?
    4. What happens if the person does not respond?
    5. What does it mean to gather in His name?
