Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor
Series: The Church: Church Discipline
Key Text: Matthew 18
“If any man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go and search for the one that is straying?” [Matthew 18:12]
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues our series on the Church, and specifically church discipline, as we look at the teaching of Jesus in Matthew 18.
And what we find is that this is not an isolated text, but a theological treatise that not only instructs in the HOW of church discipline but the WHY, as well — and roots discipline in the Gospel of grace.
