Carrying the Burdens

    There is never a lull in the items that need prayer. Our lists are long. Others lists are long.

    Part of our role as Christians is to use prayer – and other means to help bear another’s burdens, as listed in Galatians 6:2. But that follows Galatians 6:1 about gently helping those who are in sin. They may not see what they are doing as sin, they may not see anyway out of their predicament. We may be the ones to show God's continuing grace.

    Bearing another’s burden isn’t just praying for them. It’s being with them, talking to them, encouraging them to repent, praying with them. These are ways the people who need help with a burden – and sin is truly a burden – will know someone is helping bear burdens with these actions, and not just our sometimes empty promises to pray for them, and we forget.

    The more people who legitimately help bear a burden, make the load lighter for the one carrying it.

    Verses 3-4 give a warning to watch ourselves when we try to rescue someone from sin, that we don’t fall in the same sin trap.

    Verse 5 reminds us that we each have our responsibility to bear our own burden. This means we can’t dump all our problems and needs on someone else, without expecting to have a role in the outcome solution.

    Bear one another’s burdens, yes, but we should bear the responsibility of setting a positive Christian example in our conduct, in how seek those deep in sin, and in any way we minister or present ourselves.

Dan Steinbeck, Moderator
