A life worthy

Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ  (Galatians 6:2).

Interesting how Paul says this right after talking about confronting a brother in sin.  Whaddaya think?  Connected, maybe?

Nah…

Yeah… 

Remember that person in sin, the one you’re trying to rescue? 

They’re trapped. 

They’re struggling under a burden of doubt, of fear, of ignorance, of mistrust–you name it. You can’t just ride in like Sir Knight, slay the sin dragon, and ride off to the next adventure.  You need to follow through. 

You need to stay.  

If God has called you to intervene, he has called you to do some heavy lifting.

Somehow–through prayer, through encouragement, through accountability, through instruction in the Word–you need to shoulder some of that load and help carry it to the foot of the Cross. The warrior must beat his sword into a plow and spend a little time working the soil. 

It isn’t easy–which is why we don’t dive heedlessly into another person’s life.

But it is necessary.

Hey, if we were meant to do this alone, our hands wouldn’t fit together so well.

Happy Wednesday, Beloved.

  1. Wonderful post! I have to admit, that I am convicted here. I mean, I like to help, but don’t always “stay” as I should. Thank you for posting. God bless.
