“Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness … Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ” (v1-2). Paul urged the Galatians, Jews and Gentiles together, to get involved in each other’s lives. With wisdom and gentleness, they should not overlook sin, but make the effort to “restore” their brother or sister. In the end, each was responsible for his or her own choices: “each will have to bear his own load” (v5).
“Let each one test his own work …” (v4). When we live first for Jesus, we have the strength, peace, and confidence to help one another.
