Addressing Concern, the Jesus Way (Matthew 18:15-20)

Addressing Concern, the Jesus Way (Matthew 18:15-20)

This was not an easy sermon to preach. But it was a necessary one. Far too many Christians do not follow the Matthew 18 protocol to handle disagreements, offenses, or concerns. Why? Either we still don’t know the protocol, or, more likely, we ignore the protocol because other means of “dealing with our concerns” are easier. So how do we get back to addressing concerns in the way of Jesus?
