Weekly Inspiration – Don’t Neglect Church Discipline

By Ryan Kelly –

It can be hard to approach a brother or sister in love and rebuke sin in their life. But it’s a job of each Christian in the church – to refine one another by fire in order to build one another up in Christ. Paul uses the Corinthians as an example of what can be produced after church discipline takes place.

“Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. See what this godly sorrow has produced in you: what earnestness, what eagerness to clear yourselves, what indignation, what alarm, what longing, what concern, what readiness to see justice done. At every point you have proved yourselves to be innocent in this matter.” 2 Corinthians 7:10-11

Don’t dodge opportunities to help a brother or sister, but take advantage of opportunities that God gives you. Doing so allows them to grow even closer to the Lord.
