The man who was put out of the fellowship (See Jul 9) repented and was restored by the grace of God!

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 2:5-11

ESV Text: 2 Corinthians 2:5-11


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 2

     5 But if any have caused grief, he hath not grieved me, but in part: that I may not overcharge you all. 6 Sufficient to such a man is this punishment, which was inflicted of many. 7 So that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow. 8 Wherefore I beseech you that ye would confirm your love toward him. 9 For to this end also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether ye be obedient in all things. 10 To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ; 11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 276:
Come unto Me, Ye Weary

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. “Come unto Me, ye weary, 
And I will give you rest.” 
O blessed voice of Jesus, 
Which comes to hearts opprest! 
It tells of benediction, 
Of pardon, grace, and peace, 
Of joy that hath no ending, 
Of love which cannot cease. 

2. “Come unto Me, ye wanderers; 
And I will give you light.” 
O loving voice of Jesus, 
Which comes to cheer the night! 
Our hearts were filled with sadness, 
And we had lost our way; 
But Thou hast brought us gladness 
And songs at break of day. 

3. “Come unto Me, ye fainting, 
And I will give you life.” 
O cheering voice of Jesus, 
Which comes to aid our strife! 
The Foe is stern and eager, 
The fight is fierce and long; 
But Thou hast made us mighty 
And stronger than the strong. 

4. And whosoever cometh, 
I will not cast him out.” 
O patient love of Jesus, 
Which drives away our doubt, 
Which, though we be unworthy 
Of love so great and free, 
Invites us very sinners 
To come, dear Lord, to Thee!
