TEXT: Galatians 6: 1-5
OUTLINE: Bear Ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. Verse 2.
CONTENT: In our spiritual walk we sometimes fall, or it seems as if we can’t get up or
out of our rut. It is important to bear one another’s burdens; sometimes it is only God’s
mercy why we are not consumed. Paul spoke to the Christians in Galatia about freedom of
walking with Christ. As Christians we are not bound by the law, and there is a responsibility
for us in the faith, to seek to help the weak so they can redeem themselves. Sometimes as
Christians we are tempted to do things not pleasing to God. Paul wrote an angry letter to
the Galatians because some went back to the old ways of life, being fed with false
teachings by the Judaic laws and rites.
As Christians, do all in your power to restore faith We have all sinned and come short of
God’s grace and glory. We cannot judge others for we do not know what God is doing in
their lives, but be conscious of the needs of others.
Work for unity in the church, and, moving on to perfection, try to be more like Jesus. Relate
to the crises of others. Luke 18: 10-14 tells of the tax collector and the Pharisee. The
Pharisee was self-righteous in his prayer, while the publican (tax collector) was humble and
asked for mercy.
When Christ asks of you, did you help someone in my name—what will your answer be.
You cannot love, without demonstrating it.
Let your living demonstrate who you are.
