Josh shares from a passage in Matthew 18 part of which is commonly quoted without the context preceding it. We've all heard "where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them," but that comes at the end of Jesus' instructions regarding how to handle conflict. Jesus is being realistic with the disciples. You are going to have conflict. You are going to be hurt. This is a way to fight for healing. Matthew 18:15-20; Matthew 9:9; Luke 19:5-10.
