Galatians 5:26-6:6                             
Prayer for God’s saving grace:

Dear God, I know that I have sin in my life. I know that you sent  your Son to die on the cross to pay for my sin and bring me forgiveness. I accept your forgiveness now and ask that you would come into my life and lead me from now on. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen

 Set Free From the Sickness of Sin           

Through Healing Restoration  (6:1)

 1. Believers still get caught in the trap of sin

 Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression . . .” (v1a)

2. Those who are spiritual are called to restore them

“. . .you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness”. (v1b)

“If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother . . . “ (Matthew 18:15-17) 

Come as you are but don’t stay as you are!

 

Set Free From the Sickness of Competition 

          Through Healing Fellowship  (6:2-6) 

1. Believers still get caught in the trap of comparison 

“For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself”. (v3)

2. Those who are spiritual are called to be humble

Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. . .But let each one test his own work and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor. For each will have to bear his own load” (v2,4-5) 

Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus”  (Philippians 2:3-5)

 Carry each other’s burdens and carry your own load!
