We often think of forgiveness as having no limits. But that's not what the Bible teaches. God's grace, and ours, too, does have limits. But what are those limits, how do we encounter them, and what do they do to our relationships? In this exposition of Matthew 18:15-20, Malcolm explores how the love of Christ acts as mediator between Christians, and how people can, tragically, place themselves outisde the limits of forgiveness.
When I was in college our ministry took canoe trips at least once a year. We’d camp, canoe, swim, and just have a good time together. One of the things we observed, however, is that canoeing all day with another person tends to reveal things about their (and your) character. We always joked that if a…

Sunday, June 13, 2021. 1 Corinthians 5:1-13 | “Purge the Evil Person.” 1 Corinthians sounds like a harsh letter directed at a church with significant sin, but it is a “holy harshness” and “divine discipline” meant not to punish, but to purify! The Church is powerful when the Church is pure. Because God is holy, His Church must care about Church discipline.
What is church discipline? What is the process of church discipline? Upon whom should it be practiced?

Pastor Glenn • Grace United Family Church • Sermon • • 181 views • 49:17
For anyone to claim that the church doesn't have problems with sin have been living under a rock for 2000 years. It is true to a certain extent, that all sin is alike to God. But incest with their "father's wife"? Back in "the day" this was looked on as unthinkable, even among those living in the culture known for rampant sexual immorality. How to handle it? And how are Christians supposed to handle sin in non-Christian culture anyway? Come with the Grace United crew as we seek to discover what a wordly church is like and how to avoid trying to make the world "churchy".

There are many ways we can disobey Jesus’ words in Matthew 18. We can fail to deal with sin. After all, didn’t Jesus say, “Judge not, lest ye be judged yourself?” We can carry out these steps with too much enthusiasm, looking to cleanse the Church of sinners, pulling up those weeds that the Evil One…

I suspect most people who have been in the church for any length of time have witnessed conflict in the church. Sometimes the conflict is brief and minor. However, at other times, the conflict can be destructive and drawn out. Churches have split. People have walked away from the faith. And the reputation…
