“So let’s do it—full of belief... Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word. Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on.” –Hebrews 10:24-25

Text: Romans 3:23 & Matthew 7:1-6

Sermon Title:“Iron Sharpens Iron 4 of 4: When the Church Comes Up Short”

Theme: Despite all of the talk about love and forgiveness we hear in church sometimes people get hurt by others in church. Though not usually intentional it does happen. When it does how can we deal with it effectively?

Questions to Think About as You Read:
 Have you or someone you know ever been hurt by something someone said or did in church?
 Why does that hypocrite label tend to stick when the church comes up short?
