Don’t expect a Max Lucado book on this subject, but material would not be hard to find. One chapter could be the Jerusalem Conference (Acts 15) where the church discerned the invitation of grace to the Gentiles. 1 Corinthians 5 could be chapter 2–the day the church at Corinth gathered to remove a man from fellowship for public and unrepentant sin. It was a tense and difficult meeting that worked eventually for good. (cf 2 Corinthians 7:8-12) One of the things that I like best about being Baptist is our emphasis on congregational government. “In the name of our Lord Jesus, when you are assembled”(1 Corinthians 5:4) has the sound of strength–of important/difficult decisions being made by the people of God. Have you been to a business meeting lately? Sept 25 will be a GREAT opportunity. Part of the agenda will be a “State of the Church” address. I have so many things to tell you. I am counting on the Lord’s help and your support, just like 1 Corinthians 5.
