Jesus’ Plan for Dealing with Sin in His Church

We come now to the passage that contains Jesus’ plan to deal with sin in his church. We need to understand that Jesus’ promise to build his church is connected to the use of the Keys of the Kingdom. (See Matthew 16:18-19) In Matthew 18, Jesus instructs us in the process of church discipline, which is one of those keys.
We will consider these three points from the text:
1. The context of this plan. (When do we do this?)
2. The process of this plan. (It’s a three-step process.)
3. The goal and blessing of this plan. (The promise and presence of Christ.)
