ROFL CCSA 2014 SEASON. Governing Clinic. Clinic Summary. What is the C.A.S.E? What is a Governor? What does a Governor do? What is a Devotion? How do we conduct a Devotion ? Closing thoughts. The C.A.S.E. Committee. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart,
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart,
as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for his wrong, and there is no favoritism.”
"If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.“
~Matthew 18:15-20 (English Standard Version)
Christian has sinned against us?
Three guiding principles for every Christian to follow:
I. Go to the person in private (v. 15). Above all else, go to him with the idea of winning your brother, not winning an argument. When you do it in strict privacy it will make it easier for him to confess the sin.
II. Ask for the help of others(v. 16). Only after we have prayerfully followed step 1 should we go to step 2. If the sinning brother refuses to listen we may then share the facts as we see them with one or two dependable believers and ask them for their prayerful counsel. It is possible that we are wrong. If they feel the cause is right, then together we can go to the offender and try once again to win him.
III. Ask the church for help (vv. 17-20) After you have followed steps one and two and the sinning brother still fails to recognize his error, the situation should be brought before the entire Church (C.A.S.E.)
However we must keep in mind that our goal is not the winning of a case but the winning of a brother. If this person still refuses to acknowledge his sin he is to be treated as an outsider but not hated.
