Restoring One Another

Our message from Galatians 6:1 encourages us to embrace the good grace of being corrected by our brethren. But there is so much more to it than that. We learn that isolation is unbecoming of a Christian, for we are family. In this message, five lessons from our text and some application drives home the necessity for healthy church members to be spirit-led, gentle people who love their brother enough to restore them when they sin. Restoration is always the aim of brethren.

Our sermon headings were:

  1. Life in the Spirit is a group endeavor
  2. Believers still sin
  3. When to deal with sin in the church
  4. Who is to handle sin in the church
  5. How to confront sin in the church
  6. Applying it here at CCF

 

Galatians 6:1

6:1 Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. (ESV)

Our public reading was:

Titus 3:1-11

3:1 Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people. For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. The saying is trustworthy, and I want you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed in God may be careful to devote themselves to good works. These things are excellent and profitable for people. But avoid foolish controversies, genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels about the law, for they are unprofitable and worthless. 10 As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him, 11 knowing that such a person is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned. (ESV)
