What the two or three coming together in Jesus’ name must do if they want Jesus to be with them – Matthew 18:20

What did Jesus mean when He said, “Where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them (Matthew 18:20)?” Was this a promise that He would be with us when we pray in groups? Is final verse in a set of instruction regarding how to discipline someone in our churches? Or did Jesus have something else in mind when He spoke these words? This article gives an account of my journey from confusion to understanding regarding the context of this verse and what Jesus may have been telling us, at least as I see it today.
