Summary: What should the Church do when a brother/sister repents and comes back to the Lord?

SERMON: When a Brother Comes Home!

TEXT: 2 Cor. 2:7-8. The sinner repented so Paul instructions how to welcome him back home.

1. “FORGIVE him.” True forgiveness is letting go of any desire for revenge!

2. “COMFORT him.” Comfort means, “call him near, invite, invoke, exhort, entreat.”

3. “CONFIRM your love to him.” Confirm (affirm) means, “ratify, make authoritative.”

Conclusion: Forgiveness is a precious gift!
