Title: How People of Grace handle

Introduction

Today we finish up our series on the book of Galatians by looking at chapter 6:1-10.Today’s message is titled “How People of Grace handle Burdens and Blessings.”

Every life is a composite of burdens and blessings!This is not heaven. There is no “And they lived happily ever after” here on earth. We call that a fairy tale. That’s not reality! The Bible is not a fairy tale. Its reality. Real people have burdens and blessings.

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.2 Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.3 If anyone thinks they are something when they are not, they deceive themselves.4 Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else,5 for each one should carry their own load.6 Nevertheless, the one who receives instruction in the word should share all good things with their instructor.7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.8 Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

V1-5 How people of Grace handle burdens

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.2 Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.3 If anyone thinks they are something when they are not, they deceive themselves.4 Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else,5 for each one should carry their own load

1. Let’s start by looking at where do burdens come from?

When you know where burdens come from you can help prevent some burdens from coming .

1. Some burdens come because we are caught in a sin

“Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin…”

A. When you are caught in a sin it always gives birth to a burden.

Being caught in a sin is never a blessing. Being caught in a sin is always a burden.

Sin beats you up. Sin blocks your progress.

Condemnation, guilt…

B. Sin lies to us and deceives us into believing our sin gives birth to a blessing.

C. We first see this lie in the garden of Eden.

You will not die. Instead you will be like God.

Sin disguises the burden underneath by putting a blessing on top.

It’s a blessing on the surface with a burden underneath.

D. The NIV translates verse one this way. “if anyone is caught in a sin.

E. Sin sets out to catch us
