Bear ye one anothers burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2).
There are a vast number of burdened people in the Christian church today. These individuals need help from the Lords people to face the extreme difficulties of the day in which we live. The Apostle Paul exhorted us to bear ye one anothers burdens.
In our text, the word burden means a great weight, or loadthings that are extremely hard to bear up under, things that are difficult to carry. What a wonderful ministry it would be if Christians would help carry the burdens of others!
May our ministry be to help those who are burdened about lost loved ones. We should do all we can through intercessory prayer and witnessing. Others are burdened with sickness, pain, and sorrow. We should be compassionate toward them, showing mercy and love, and count it a privilege to weep with them that weep (Romans 12:15). Many carry the burden of mental anguish and pressure. We should help them by giving encouragement instead of criticism.
Bearing one anothers burdens fulfills the law of Christ. This is not a law of legal obligation, but a law of love and grace. My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth (I John 3:18).
For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself (Galatians 6:3). The warning is that we should never feel so self-important, superior, or exclusive that we will not stoop to bear the heavy load of others. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate (Romans 12:16).
One person who always bears our burdens is Christ. Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and He shall sustain thee (Psalm 55:22). Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you (I Peter 5:7). NPS
