挽回 [Retrieve]

书卷:马太福音(新约)
作者:马太

马太福音18章17节:“若是不听他们,就告诉教会;若是不听教会,就看他像外邦人和税吏一样。”

今日默想:教会是信徒之间出事时的最后挽回机会。如果教会全体的力量仍不能帮助犯错的弟兄,那么他必定是堕落到完全属肉体的地步。在这种情形之下,就须要断绝和他交往,一面叫他自觉羞愧,一面免使教会的见证受到亏损。使人失去在教会中的交通乃是一件大事,所以握有教会治理权柄的人应当慎重其事,尽力作使人和好的工作,非到必要,不轻易行使权柄。

Book: Matthew (New Testament)
Author: Matthew

Matthew 18:17 :“And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector.”

Today’s Meditation: Church is a place of last chance to retrieve a brethren’s soul. If the power of whole church members cannot help the brethren, then that brethren must have fall to obey the world completely. In this case, we need to cut off the relationship with him so that he may be ashamed and to keep church from getting negative review. It is a big matter to cut off such relationship. Thus, the leaders in church must do things carefully and try to bring people together with their assigned authorities.
