“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.” (Galatians 6:1 ESV)
Now read that again slowly. Anyone. Any transgression. You. Should. Restore. Spirit of Gentleness. Keep watch.
May we be faithful in doing our part in the restoration of our brothers and sisters to God – as led first by example by Jesus, then through the Holy Spirit in us.
Verse 2 continues this thought with “bear one another’s burdens” – as this fulfills the law of Christ that we love one another.
“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. 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. And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:7-9 ESV)
We reap what we sow. In due time. Don’t give up!
