Sermon Notes
  1. By finding examples of corrective discipline in the Bible, we find the Transfiguration.
  2. Around the time of the Transfiguration, Jesus had started to focus his attention on readying the disciples for when he has to take on the cross.
  3. Self-discipline is getting a hold of yourself as to take control of your emotions and spirit. This is the time to ask for forgiveness from a brother to make sure you have not wronged them.
  4. After self-discipline, you must then address your brother as to convict him of his sin. This is because you now realize that the problem is not with yourself, but with your brother.
  5. From the previous step, you should bring another person as a witness. This is to help validate the refusal towards repentance.
  6. The first step of formal discipline starts here. If your brother still hasn’t repented, then you need to tell the church. At this point it is not the matter of the world, but the church alone. The mass of believers is to add emphasis on the urgency of the matter.
  7. If they won’t even listen to the church, grieving in the loss of a brother is in order. At this point it is the matter of the world’s and the judicial system.
  8. Everyone is foolish. The term “sheep” is actually condescending in the fact that we don’t know what we are doing and we need someone to save us.
  9. God can use the devil to discipline His people.

“May the peace of God be with you always.
Our Father in Heaven, we praise You for Your Word as we submit ourselves to the teaching of it.
In your grace we seek that You mature us now in Your love & righteousness.
We pray in the name of Jesus.”

~ Amen ~
