Price: FREE


An essential part of learning to live in community is having some way of dealing with the inevitable sin and friction that will arise. Leaders will sin against the congregation; the congregation will sin against the leaders; and congregants will sin against one another. Being made a part of the new man, the new humanity in Jesus, hasn’t exempted us from the presence of sin. We still wrong one another and we need to know how to deal with it. Paul gives us three commands today that help us understand what to do: love one another, bear with one another, forgive one another. How does each of these commands help us learn how to deal with sin in our midst?
