Bear One Another’s Burdens
Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. – Galatians 6:2
I have found that congregations are not bearing one another’s burdens. Only the burdens of those within the congregation and some times, most of the time, not even those needs.
I’ve seen churches boast about how they help in the community, but when people are sent to them for help, they refuse to help them unless they become a part of their congregation.
I say this to say this: as Believers, we are not just called to help the Believers but the unbelievers as well. We are called to go into all the world and preach the Gospel. We are not called to just sit in our pew every Sunday and Wednesday and go through the motions of being a Christian.
We need to stand up for God. We have to help others when we have the means to meet a need, no matter their gender, race or church background.
We must be God’s hands in our sphere of influence because for some, we may be the only glimpse of Jesus they ever see.

Have you received Jesus as your Lord and Saviour? Do you believe Jesus died to pay the price for your sin? That He was raised from the dead? Then just pray aloud, “Lord Jesus, I repent of all my sins. Come into my heart and be my Lord and Saviour.” If you believed in your heart and confessed with your mouth, you are Born-again. Let us know if you prayed this prayer.
