The way Christ guards the holiness of the church is by the use of the neglected grace of Church Discipline. It is driven by the salvation of the sinner and the holiness of the church.
Pastor Rob Abboud reminds us of the importance to pursue peace with one another. For unresolved conflict with each other, means conflict with Jesus himself.
Jesus builds his church by making himself known by the power of his Spirit, then through the Spirit Jesus equips the church to be a proper reflection of himself. Jesus does this to achieve his mission by making himself known through the witness of his church.
The way Christ guards the holiness of the church is by the use of the neglected grace of Church Discipline. It is driven by salvation of the sinner and the holiness of the church.
When conflict ends up in peace then trust needs to be rebuilt with love.
