About This Message

1. Private Stage

If your brother sins against you, go and tell him what he did without other people hearing it. If he listens to you, you have won your brother back again…

Matthew 18:15 (NIV)

2. Semi-Private Stage

But if he will not listen to you, take one or two other people with you. Every word may be remembered by the two or three who heard.
Matthew 18:17 (NIV)

3. Church Stage

If he will not listen to them, tell the trouble to the church. If he does not listen to the church, think of him as a person who is as bad as one who does not know God and a person who gathers taxes.
Matthew 18:17 (NIV)

4. Discipline Stage

If he will not listen to them, tell the trouble to the church. If he does not listen to the church, think of him as a person who is as bad as one who does not know God and a person who gathers taxes.
Matthew 18:17 (NIV)

5. Prayer Stage

Again I tell you this: If two of you agree on earth about anything you pray for, it will be done for you by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, there I am with them.
Matthew 18:19-20 (NIV)

6. Forgiveness Stage

Then Peter came to Jesus and said, “Lord, how many times may my brother sin against me and I forgive him, up to seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I tell you, not seven times but seventy times seven!
Matthew 18:21-22 (NIV)
