Restore Brethren Overtaken in a Fault. Consider Yourself Lest You Are Tempted. Bear One Another’s Burdens. Don’t Let Yourself Be Deceived About Your Importance. Examine Your Motives Carefully. Bear Your Own Burden. Share Material Things With Those Who Instruct You. Remember You’ll Reap What You Sow. Sow to the Spirit, Not the Flesh. Don’t Get Tired of Doing Right. Be a Giving Person to All Men, Especially Other Believers.
(Gal. 6:1-10 NLT) “Dear brothers and sisters, if another Christian is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself. Share each other's troubles and problems, and in this way obey the law of Christ. If you think you are too important to help someone in need, you are only fooling yourself. You are really a nobody. Be sure to do what you should, for then you will enjoy the personal satisfaction of having done your work well, and you won't need to compare yourself to anyone else. For we are each responsible for our own conduct. Those who are taught the word of God should help their teachers by paying them. Don't be misled. Remember that you can't ignore God and get away with it. You will always reap what you sow! Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful desires will harvest the consequences of decay and death. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit. So don't get tired of doing what is good. Don't get discouraged and give up, for we will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time. Whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone, especially to our Christian brothers and sisters.”
Let God’s Grace Flow Through You.
(Gal. 6:18 NLT) “My dear brothers and sisters, may the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.”
Yield to God’s Grace. Surrender to God’s Peace.
(Eph. 1:2 NLT) “May grace and peace be yours, sent to you from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.”
GRACE! That’s the answer to all the above! For years Christians have thought of God’s Grace as being “unmerited favor”! Please, add to that, “GRACE IS GOD’S GREAT POWER”!
And that power is available to every single believer! It’s the “grace of God” that enables us to produce “God-given Fruit”. It’s the “grace of God” that enables us to produce “God-given Works”. THE FRUIT OF OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS NOTHING BUT FILTHY RAGS!!! But if all of us would become a CHANNEL through which God’s Power can flow, every one of us can like “Branches on a Vine”! And God’s Power, His Grace can flow through us producing God Inspired Fruit and God Inspired Works!
When God’s Love flows through us, everybody, saint and sinner alike, will recognize it is FLOWING FROM GOD! God will get the credit! And When God’s Compassion flows through us, like “helping the poor” or “taking the Gospel to the ends of the Earth”, everybody, saint and sinner alike, will recognize it is “God’s Grace to Produce Good Works” flowing through us from God! Again, God will get the credit! It will be so obvious!
“GOD IS ABLE TO MAKE ALL GRACE ABOUND TOWARD YOU; THAT YE, ALWAYS HAVING ALL SUFFICIENCY IN ALL THINGS, MAY ABOUND TO EVERY GOOD WORK!” (2 Cor. 9:8)Write to Pastor Strader to request his book
