Bible: Matthew 18:15-20

Restoring Christian Relationships

18:15If 1  your brother 2  sins, 3  go and show him his fault 4  when the two of you are alone. If he listens to you, you have regained your brother. 18:16 But if he does not listen, take one or two others with you, so that at the testimony of two or three witnesses every matter may be established. 5  18:17 If 6  he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. If 7  he refuses to listen to the church, treat him like 8  a Gentile 9  or a tax collector. 10 

18:18I tell you the truth, 11  whatever you bind on earth will have been bound in heaven, and whatever you release on earth will have been released in heaven. 18:19 Again, I tell you the truth, 12  if two of you on earth agree about whatever you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you. 13  18:20 For where two or three are assembled in my name, I am there among them.”
