The disciple's duty is not to despise but to recover the disciple who stumbles into sin.
I. The Duty Not to Despise the Sinning Disciple. A. No Right to Despise. B. Every Reason Not to Despise. 1. God Is Their Protector. 2. Christ Is Their Savior. II. The Duty to Recover the Sinning Disciple. A. The Pursuit. B. The Recovery and Rejoicing. C. The Will of the Father.
Great Sermon! Thanks for drawing us back to our priestly duties. It is urgent that Christians remember that in seeking to restore and save others, we ourselves are saved and restored.
Unfortunately, we have allowed the world influence us to expose those who are not like ourselves; at the moment. We join hands with the wicked media that crushes a fallen saint to the extent that it makes it almost impossible for restoration to occur.
There are pastors (one I know personally) whose messages are about fallen saints; seldom about the risen Lord.
Thanks for reminding us whose WE are.

when a brother falls into sin ... what to do I learned so much from this sermon about when a brother In Christ falls into sin. I am not going to try to summarize this sermon. If you take the time to listen you will learn much too! That is a promise!
