Gently Restore

TODAY’S VERSE

“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 other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”
Galatians 6:1-2 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
There are many sins that we can fall into. Many habits, addictions, and sins that are hard to break. That is why we need each other. There is so much talk about accountability. But we need something more than a watchdog. We need someone who knows our struggles and loves us, even when we fall. Someone who is there for you. There is no judgment for they understand about “slips” and are there to lift you up when you fall. Their goal is to restore, not scold or shun. God has called us to carry each other’s burden. He has asked that we “restore” someone gently, not reprimand or ostracize them. Today, let’s follow Christ and help carry someone else’s burden.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, forgive me for judging others. Instead, help me gently restore those in need and bear their burdens. Help me to remember my own sins and how You have forgiven me. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
