Galatians 6

1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

2 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

3 For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

4 But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.

5 For every man shall bear his own burden.

6 Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.

7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

11 Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand.

12 As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.

13 For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.

14 But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

16 And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

17 From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.

18 Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.

  1. v17 From henceforth let no man trouble me: I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.

    The Church is the body of CHRIST .
    GOD desires that HIS CHURCH be separated, sanctified, and powerful with HIS PRESENCE, and make a difference in this world

    MORE REPRESTATION OF THE LORD to this dying sinful world.
    BE CHURCH

  2. Live creatively, friends. If someone falls into sin, forgivingly restore him, saving your critical comments for yourself. You might be needing forgiveness before the day’s out. Stoop down and reach out to those who are oppressed. Share their burdens, and so complete Christ’s law. If you think you are too good for that, you are badly deceived.
    Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life. MSG

    We all need to figure out what we’ve been called to do, and do that to the best of our own ability. None of us have been called to kick a brother or sister while they’re down.

  3. Verses 1-6 NLT “Live creatively, friends. If someone falls into sin, forgivingly restore him, saving your critical comments for yourself. You might be needing forgiveness before the day’s out. Stoop down and reach out to those who are oppressed. Share their burdens, and so complete Christ’s law. If you think you are too good for that, you are badly deceived. Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life. Be very sure now, you who have been trained to a self-sufficient maturity, that you enter into a generous common life with those who have trained you, sharing all the good things that you have and experience.” This passage reminded me of our “Impacting our Future Together” statement “Imagine – Creatively, Invest – Sacrificially, Impact – Eternally”. There is no better way to do all of these things, than to help each other.

  4. Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit. (‭Galatians‬ ‭6‬:‭8‬ NLT)

    We can’t live our lives in carnality. If we do our fruit will be negative and lead to death. We have to be kingdom minded and commited to his plan. So I decide to live for Christ so that i won’t have to live in fear anymore or be hurt by this world.and I gain everlasting life in the end!

  5. (AMP) Galatians 6:15-16
    For neither is circumcision (now) of any importance, nor uncircumcision, but (only) a new creation (the result of a new birth and a new nature in Christ Jesus, the Messiah).
    Peace and mercy be upon all who walk by this rule ( who discipline themselves and regulate their lives by this principle), even upon the (true) Israel of God!

    2 Cor. 5:17 says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things become new.”

    In order to experience the new birth or have a new nature (become a new creature) in Christ Jesus, one must Repent, be Baptized in Jesus Name, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.

    Thank You JESUS that our past is gone, and we are made new in You!

  6. 1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

    2 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

    3 For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

    We are all sinners and come short of the glory of God. We must not deceive ourselves into thinking we are better than someone else, but we all should strive to be more like Christ and help each other to do the same.

  7. 12 As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.

    13 For neither they themselves who are circumcised keep the law; but desire to have you circumcised, that they may glory in your flesh.
    Please correct me if I am wrong, but I feel like the people were so caught up in a tradition that they forgot to see the new believers as God sees them. They had forgotten how to love them and help them in their new faith because they were so consumed by one detail that apparently wasn’t meant to be such a big deal. I am very thankful that God made everything simple for us in reality, just love your neighbor as you love yourself.

  8. 1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

    2 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

    3 For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

    4 But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.

    5 For every man shall bear his own burden.

    As brethren of the saints of God, we should do all we can to restore one that falls and bring him back into the fold. We should always remember that there are certain burdens that we all must bear all by ourselves. But to be restored back to the church we need the help of the brethren.
    In bearing one another’s burdens it helps us to understand that we are not what we are of our on doings, but by the grace of God. We should never think more highly of ourselves than what we are.

  9. 1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

    the carnal thing to do when someone trips up or falls is to stand by, watch from the sidelines, and talk about it/gossip. The spiritual thing to do is restore them in meekness, considering ourselves. How would we handle a situation like that? How do we want others to treat us if we are to fall victim to our weakness? None of us are perfect. Treat others the way you want to be treated.

    Romans 13:10
    Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

    Galatians 5:14
    For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

  10. MORE: Fellow laborers

    Galatians 6:3 (Amplified Bible – AMP)
    3 For if any person thinks himself to be somebody [too important to condescend to shoulder another’s load] when he is nobody [of superiority except in his own estimation], he deceives and deludes and cheats himself.

    When we look at the cross we are reminded of the trek down the via Delarosa up to golgotha’s hill. We can see the aching muscles from the heavy cross beam’s weight. The sweat, and blood flowing down our savior’s face as he copes with the sheer agony and pain pulsating through his flesh reveals his passion to save humanity. He carried his cross.

    To be a disciple we have a cross to carry as well. This includes bearing the burdens of others.

    Galatians 6:2 (KJV Strong’s)
    2 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

    Burden – (Mounce’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and) [983] βάρος baros 6x weight, heaviness; a burden, anything grievous and hard to be borne, Mt. 20:12; Acts 15:28; Gal. 6:2; Rev. 2:24; burden, charge or weight, influence, dignity, honor, 1 Thess. 2:7; with another noun in government, fulness, abundance, excellence, 2 Cor. 4:17*

    When we got the Holy Ghost God did not hand us a bag of popcorn and a theater seat saying “enjoy the show.” There is a real world out there demanding real action. We are all in this together. The more we can do to shoulder the responsibility of our Pastor, and leaders the more we shall see souls saved.

    God has been screaming from the heavens “UNITY!” We must come together like never before. Save my place but don’t forget yours.

    Galatians 6:4-5 (Wuest – The New Testament: An Expanded Translation)
    4 But his own work let each one put to the test and thus approve, and then with respect to himself alone will he have a ground for glorying, and not with respect to the other one [with whom he had compared himself], 5 for each shall bear his own private burden.

    Let’s help each other, and don’t compare ourselves to each other. Help share the burden knowing each of us have our own personal burden’s we carry as well.

  11. 1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
    2 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
    3 For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.
    4 But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
    5 For every man shall bear his own burden.

    We need to help those that have fallen return to the Lord. We can not turn our backs to them, we need to keep in touch for when the moment comes when they have no one else to go to but Christ; let’s be there to hold their hand as we walk in the spirit of repentance to the altar together. We can not carry their burden for them for we will hinder what ever our Lord might be doing in their lives to bring them back. Instead, make sure you are there in prayer, claiming them by the Precious Blood of Jesus, so when they return it is as they have never left in the first place.

    Proverbs 24:16-18
    16 For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.
    17 Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth:
    18 Lest the Lord see it, and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him.

  12. 1-3 Live creatively, friends. If someone falls into sin, forgivingly restore him, saving your critical comments for yourself. You might be needing forgiveness before the day’s out. Stoop down and reach out to those who are oppressed. Share their burdens, and so complete Christ’s law. If you think you are too good for that, you are badly deceived. (MSG)

    MORE Creative Living

    We can never become boastful or self righteous, when it comes to the nature of “back sliding” or falling into sin. We all have fallen short of the glory of God, and all have made mistakes.

    Romans 3:23 (NLT)
    23 For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.

    Although this is not an excuse to sin. It’s an understanding.

  13. 2 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

    When you see a brother in Christ fall in his spiritual walk with Christ, don’t wait for someone else to go and do something about it, take it upon yourself and go and help them out. For love is not a noun but a verb, only when you help someone else in needing are you actually loving people. For the scriptures say serve ye one another as one would serve himself

  14. 7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

    8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

    9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

    We will get back what we put out. The world calls it karma but we know that it is an age.old law the men have lived by for thousands ago years,originating in the bible and not in Buddhist culture. God is faithful and true to his word so we should watch what we say and do. Sometimes it seems that when we do bad it is quick to come back to us but when we do good it takes a whole. This I believe is what the word says don’t get weary in well doing. Our job is to do good and just keep on keepin on because by the good that we do and the good that we receive people will see Christ in it

  15. 6 Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.
    7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

    We are known by our works. All of them. Good and bad. This is why we must strive to do good. Not just in the eyes of God but man too. Whatever we sow. This is what we will reap. Sow good get good. Sow bad get bad. Thank God for his mercy.

  16. 3 For if any person thinks himself to be somebody [too important to condescend to shoulder another’s load] when he is nobody [of superiority except in his own estimation], he deceives and deludes and cheats himself.
    4 But let every person carefully scrutinize and examine and test his own conduct and his own work. He can then have the personal satisfaction and joy of doing something commendable [[c]in itself alone] without [resorting to] boastful comparison with his neighbor.

    The key words here to me are ‘scrutinize, examine and test our own conduct and our own work’. It’s not wise to compare ourselves to one another, rather compare ourselves to Jesus Christ. We need to know where we are lacking or weak so that we can build ourselves up, rather than to boast on our strengths. Using our strengths, we are able to work on those areas of weakness. So, examine our own self and become pleasing to God in ALL our ways.

  17. Our Burden

    2 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

    3 For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

    4 But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.

    5 For every man shall bear his own burden.

    When we make our brothers burden our own, then these two seemingly contradictory scriptures make since. Our hearts should be to hold one another up as we are joint heirs to the Kingdom. This means we are all adopted into the family of God and should share the same burden for one another and the lost.

    Victory is propelled by Unity!

  18. iLove to eat MORE Word

    More Help, Less Talk
    Galatians 6:1 (NLT) Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself.

    Can you imagine the great revival that would happen in the Churches if people, (saints) would go and humbly help people that fall into sin out and onto the right path. Instead of gossip and talking behind folks backs, there would be genuine care and help.

  19. 6 Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself.
    2 Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.
    3 If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important. (NLT)

    Though we are all responsible for our own actions (as verse 5 says) we too must keep an eye out for one another. I know a father who lost a son not too long ago, and he would say, “What did I miss? Yes my son made mad choices, but was there something I missed? Did I not listen closely enough, pay enough attention?” We cannot let this happen to our fellow brothers and sisters; humble yourself and care for one another just like you would want someone to care and watch out for you.

  20. MORE SERVICE

    7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
    8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
    9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
    10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

    Serving others is often one of the most thankless opportunities in life. Reason being is that most people being served do not realize or recognize the commitments and sacrifices being made for them until long after the investment.

    It appears to be the circumstances that the apostle is addressing here in Galatians 6 in blessing those that teach you in verse 6. He then encourages the servant with the promise of HOPE. Serve others and others will serve you. Likewise in verse 8 serve GOD and GOD will serve you.

    As we serve GOD and others it will seem at times as if there is no recognition nor compensation for our investment and sacrifices. However GOD has HIS “DUE SEASON” as we continue to serve that “Due Date” accelerates toward us.

    Leader be encouraged today, servant of the LORD be encouraged today, sinner be weary today. We reap what we sow and payday is coming.

    iRepent
    iServe

  21. NIV – 14 May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which[a] the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. 15 Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is the new creation.

    In reading this chapter today, the lyrics from this older song came to mind:

    It matters so little, How much you may own
    The places you’ve been, Or people that you k
    For it all comes to nothing, When placed at His feet
    It’s nothing to Jesus, Just memories to me

    You can take all the treasures, From far away lands
    And take all the riches, you can hold in your hands
    And take all the pleasures, Your riches can buy
    But will it help, When it’s your time to die

    Only one life, So soon it will pass
    Only what’s done for Christ will last
    Only one chance to do His will
    So give to Jesus all you days
    It’s the only life that pays, When you recall
    You have but one life

    The days pass so swiftly, The months come and go
    The years melt away, Like new falling snow
    Spring turns to summer, Then summer to fall
    Autumn brings winter, Then death come to all

    The only thing that is going to count is the things that can be judged after we become a “new creature” in Christ.

  22. Galatians 6:1 Brothers and sisters if someone is caught in a sin you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves or you also may be tempted. Carry each others burdens and in this way you will fulfill the of Christ.if anyone thinks they are something when they are not they deceive themselves. Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone without comparing themselves to someone else for each one should carry their own load.

  23. Galatians 6:7-8 Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.

    Every action has a reaction. In simple terms, if you water the dirt you wall have mud. Acting in sin will produce death and fear, and all the things that people do not enjoy, even sickness. Living after righteousness in the Spirit will give us life everlasting, joy, strength and even health to our bones. We must continue to live after God putting away carnality and sin. We will reap that which we sow.

  24. Not mocked !!!! 7. Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spir’-it shall of the Spir’-it reap life everlasting. Praise ye the Lord !!!! I thank him for mercy and grace !!!!

  25. Lift up the fallen

    Galatians 6:1
    Bear One Another’s Burdens
    ​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.

    We are charged to lift up our neighbors when they fall. Not gossip about them. Not shun them. Pick them up with love. We must watch how we react to the sins of others lest we fall with railing accusations and contempt.

  26. 3 For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.
    be careful that you are not tooting your own horn. It’s not time to sit and look pretty and have a self righteous attitude. It’s time we move forward and be the man/woman God called us to be.
    Be careful that you don’t get a prideful spirit.

  27. Galatians 6:10
    As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

    A helping hand, when is in our hands to help someone in need, we shouldn’t hesitate to do so.
    Some people just need a word of encouragement, others need a shoulder to lean on, others may need food, others might need just someone to listen.
    Let us be a BLESSING TO ONE ANOTHER!!!

    Proverbs 3:27 NKJV
    Do not withhold good from to who it is due. When it is in the power of your hand to do so.
    “Do not say to your neighbor, Go, and come back, and tomorrow I will give it”, When you have it with you.

    MORE Love!
    MORE Unity!

  28. 1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

    2 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

    It’s is our duty to be vigilant. When we see our brothers and sisters struggling in any way it should compel us to help and restore them not only to how they were before, but even better (more) than they were before. It doesn’t take much. When we are living in Spirit all we need is love for our neighbor and help carry their burdens. Doing this we fulfill God’s will.

  29. So, let the good things or good works you sow for the Kingdom of God, outweigh those issues of the flesh. “Keep that flesh in check!”………………………….

    7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

    8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

    “Corruption…kills, steals, destroys, sound familiar?”…………………………….

  30. 1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

    It is our responsibility to restore those that are overtaken in a fault. I have witnessed many times saints who ignore and avoid those among us that maybe struggling.

    Beware if we speak in tongues but can’t speak to each other.

  31. Danger of Comparison

    The practice of compairing ourselves with others is so common in today’s society that it’s difficult to imagine how not to do it. As a woman, I can attest to the trechery of measuring ourselves to others by our physical features, salaries, degrees, families and houses ect. The danger is destruction, it hurts ourselves and others. If in our minds, we dominate the subject of our comparison, we can easily be swallowed up by pride. If we don’t measure up favorably, our self-esteem suffers a severe blow. It becomes a leathal competition, and neither brings glory to God.

    The first brothers Cain and Abel brought an offering before the Lord, in which God accepted Abel’s obedient offering and not Cain’s. God wasn’t making a comparison of the two brothers, but Cain felt that way. God warned him that his anger would lead to danger; the danger of comparison. “6Then the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast? 7If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.”(Gen 4:6).

    Paul says to restore someone gently when they are found in sin, and watch yourself so that we too aren’t tempted. Paul suggests that we focus instead on our own responsibilities our own ministries. Staying focused on the kingdom with our time, talent, and treasure will give us the power to rule over the sin that is crouching at the door. Comparison cannot conquer you, unless you invite it in.

  32. “From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.” Paul (the man of God) was reiterating how one should treat others, live, and heed the man of God. One should be mindful of ones actions, as one will be accountable for the same. One should obey the word of God (Jesus), for one will give an account for one’s own actions. One is very unwise to trouble the man of God, (true man of God is one that obeys the word of God and teaches/preaches all of the word of God). One must examine self with the word of God, as that is what we all will be judged with. Dear God, help me to first examine self; “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done”. What a mighty God we serve! Thank God for his word. God bless America, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  33. Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself. (‭Galatians‬ ‭6‬:‭1‬ NLT)

    It’s all in the attitude of the helper. The helper must be spiritual and not carnally led. Secondly, they must be meek or gentle. And last they must continue to watch and pray for themselves not to fall in the same pit. 

  34. Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself. Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ. If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important. (‭Galatians‬ ‭6‬:‭1-3‬ NLT)

    We should be there to help one another. We are the body of Christ and we need to be in unity and we will have weak links in our chains sometimes because we all face something…..but we don’t have to face it alone. No one should be alone in the church we should be a family and work as a family. If you see someone alone go talk to them for a bit, put yourself in their shoes and see how you would feel. We should do the same for the ones that left the church, help draw them back to God by being a friend and praying for them. If we put our minds to it we all can accomplish a lot and when I saw we I’m including myself. We all are a team.

  35. 3 For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

    What I learned about this scripture is that for any man thinks to himself that he’s to prefect for anyone or what something he does, when the man is truly nothing and when a guy acts arrogant and Boastr to himself that in gods eyes he’s a lost soul for that the lord does not allowed for men’s behavior to be exaccepted like that. For that the man deceives himself by his own attitude and pride. In Jesus Name Amen!!!!

  36. More Love II

    Galatians 6:7-8 MSG
    Don’t be misled: No one makes a fool of God. What a person plants, he will harvest. The person who plants selfishness, ignoring the needs of others—ignoring God!—harvests a crop of weeds. All he’ll have to show for his life is weeds! But the one who plants in response to God, letting God’s Spirit do the growth work in him, harvests a crop of real life, eternal life.

    Our every day actions either plant the seeds of weeds or the seeds of abundant life. But more than our own life, what we plant into others comes back around as well. We can plant love, encouragement, wisdom, kindness, etc or we can plant harsh words, anger, rudeness, hatred, etc. Freely giving love to others plants seeds of love around our own lives and opens us up to see more of that love come back around. The Lord said we cannot love Him if we hate others; we pursue the perfection of love as we plant love in all those we encounter, both towards them and God. Planting love may not always be easy but the abundant life we find as we do it is more than worth it.

    1 Corinthians 13:1-3 NLT
    1 If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

    2 If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing.

    3 If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.

  37. 7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

    8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

    God doesn’t get fooled, you will harvest what you sow. If you follow the spirit you will reap the harvest of eternal life .

  38. Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. (‭Galatians‬ ‭6‬:‭2‬ KJV)

    More compassion
    When we beat each other’s burdens then we are lifting our fellow man. This unites us in the body of Christ to making us one body with many members. We also rejoice with one on other and weep with one another. We have all things common. It lets us realize that we are not as isolated as the enemy would have us to think we are.

    Compassion brings unity. Unity bring the presence of God–Acts 2!

  39. 7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

    Be careful on what you sow!!! As a Christian everybody sees you different because they know we are following Christ!! The way you walk, talk, do things, express your feelings, say, and etc is what we are sowing not only to ourselves but to the people that are around us!!!! Lets all practice the fruits of the spirit so that we may sow blessings, love, peace, kindness, joy, faithfulness, and so on to others! One thing I always was scared for was for my children when they would grow up they would leave church and stop being Christians! Until Bro. Henderson preached how being faithful will keep your children in church and fear God!!! When it makes sense everything I am sowing now is what I am reaping…..Children are so smart and catch on things so quick it is amazing!!! I have been teaching my son memory verses and it is amazing how fast he has them memorized!!!!Everything that the parents or even grandparents are sowing the children are receiving 🙂 When you don’t feel like praising God or you don’t want to come to church. Always remember somebody is looking up to you and watching what you are sowing!!! SOWING MORE JESUS for others & me!!! 🙂

  40. 7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

    The last part if this verse is actually very well known in the Hispanic community. They view it as an eye for eye kind of mind set.
    In the kingdom of God, we can not expect to reap love after we sow hatred. Or reap kindness after sowing prejudice.
    Just as we would want our Heavenly Father to forgive us, we need to sow forgiveness to sow it.
