206: Restoring The Fallen Brother
Galatians 5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. (26) Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another. Galatians 6:1 Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual
Verse one is about restoring the falling brother. The context for this verse, flowing right out of the previous two verses. Galatians 6:1 is a word to those who have found life in the Spirit and who are desiring therefore to walk each day by the Spirit. We are told here that such people will not treat others with prideful competition and jealousy. But rather they will want to help and assist one another.
Walking strong in the Spirit you can lead by example and disciple others through living out our calling. It is not always obvious that we are helping others when doing this, but I know I would not be walking close with the Lord if it was not for my brothers and sisters in Christ being examples of spiritual disciples. Following Galatians 6:1 softens our fellow citizens hearts to accepting the Gospel and living it out.
Love the pod cast as usual, thank you Jeff!
