The Heart Behind the Hard Things

The Heart Behind the Hard Things

Welcome to Chapel City Church. We are so glad that you have joined us for our time of worship together today. Last week we looked at a passage that was easy to understand but very difficult to apply. Discipline is not something that we normally think of as encouraging and uplifting. However, we have to remember that discipline is both instructive and corrective. In one sense, we are constantly being disciplined in our faith as we study, as we learn, and as we are engaging with other believers. However, there are also times when specific sins are dealt with in a more direct way. The goal is repentance and restoration, but the process can be difficult and even painful. While we went through the text itself last week, this week we will look at the heart behind the process. How do you prepare to confront someone in their sin in a way that is both obedient and helpful? How do we ensure that we are the kind of people who can receive correction when we need it? And what role does the body of the church play in all of this? If you have questions, or if there is a way that we can be praying for you more specifically, please reach out and let us know!

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. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

Galatians 6:1-2
