Iron on Iron – Holiness & Confrontation

Jonge Tate : Iron on Iron : Holiness & Confrontation : August 25, 2018

There are times in ministry that we, especially pastors, must confront the sin of others. When we do confront someone, we must do it biblically. Scripture gives us a humble, repentant example in the interaction of King David and the prophet, Nathan, in 2 Samuel 11-12. We must give and receive confrontation of sin for the sake of our own holiness, the holiness of others, and the unity of Christ’s body, the Church.

Nathan’s example:

  1. Right God
  2. Right truth
  3. Right time
  4. Right place
  5. Right love

When we are confronted over our own sin, it is equally important that we must receive that correction rightly.

David’s example:

  1. Right admission
  2. Right direction
  3. Right attitude
  4. Right acceptance
