We've discussed the gospel in great beautiful detail. Let's look at how Paul ends the letter of Galatians.
Galatians 6:1-11 - "6 Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. 2 Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. 3 For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. 4 But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor. 5 For each will have to bear his own load.6 Let the one who is taught the word share all good things with the one who teaches. 7 Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. 8 For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. 9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. 10 So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith."
Paul begins by saying "Brothers." In other words, we're talking about other Christians who understand the gospel explained in Galatians. Paul realizes that people will still struggle with sin. What does Paul say to do in verse 1 if someone is caught in a trespass (sin)?
Tell on them
Stop associating them
In verse 1, what does Paul say is a danger when restoring someone?
making them feel too good
falling into sin as well
others getting mad at you
In verse 2, how does Paul say that we can fulfill the law of CHRIST?
going to church
reading our Bibles
giving away our possessions
Look at verse 6, Paul says that we are to bear our own load. How can we bear our own load and bear one another's burdens?
We should definitely take care of the things we are responsible for, but sometimes things get too heavy, and it's a good thing for those around us to help. Think of it like one big 'load' that is shared among a lot of people. If you've ever helped some people carry something, what happens when one of you looses his or her grip?
In my experience, when one person loses his or her grip, the other people sort of grab harder. Makes sense right? We're all responsible to carry our part, but the load really is the responsibility of the whole group, so in that moment of weakness, the other people 'step up.' What are some situations around you where you can help others bear their burdens?
Paul also stresses how helping others ends up being beneficial to you. He uses the idea of 'you reap what you sow.' If you sow to the 'flesh,' what do you reap?
If you sow to the Spirit, what do you reap?
What does it mean to 'sow' to the Spirit?
The idea of sowing to the Spirit is the idea of doing the things that God wants us to do from the Bible, specifically in this passage, the idea of helping others. Sowing to the Spirit is bearing other's burdens. If we do that we reap "life" because Jesus is life and we have him. This can be hard though, so Paul says what?
do not grow weary
Get your parents permission before watching the video on Youtube. Thanks! :)
The LORD bless you. Thank you for working through these studies on Galatians. It's a great book to help you understand the truth of GOD's love for you. I hope in the LORD that you will continue to study GOD's Word on your own for the rest of your life. If you need help with understanding GOD's Word, let me know. (
