Reciprocal Christian Relationships
For Sermon Slides, check back here.
Christian Community: Bear one another’s burdens when life is unbearable (6:1-2).
• Gently restore fallen sinners (6:1a).
• Humbly examine your own weaknesses (6:1b).
• Love one another like Christ called us to do (6:2).
Vital Christian community demands that we be humbly involved in the lives of others.
Personal Responsibility: Bear your own load when you can handle the weight (6:3-5).
• Do not think more highly of yourself than you ought to think (6:3).
• Critically examine your own life before comparing yourself to others (6:4).
• Take personal responsibility for your own spiritual growth (6:5).
Personal spiritual growth demands critical self-examination and ownership.
The Freedom Factor:
Christian community thrives when brothers and sisters truly love each other, and take responsibility for their own spiritual growth.
