Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. details logo The LORD is near - Friday, December 20, 2013

Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
(Galatians 6:1-2)

The verse above enjoins spiritual ones to restore a fallen brother in the spirit of meekness, considering themselves lest they also be tempted. Thus the spiritual man, remembering his own liability to fall, is to go in all gentleness to him who has been “overtaken in a fault” or offense, and in grace so identify with his condition as to take his burden of sin and sorrow upon himself, with a view to his succor and restoration. Now this is exactly what Christ Himself has done-only perfectly-both in life and in death.
That which was spoken of by Isaiah the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bore our diseases (Mt. 8:1,6,17), was fulfilled in His life. Concerning His death, Peter says, “Who Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree” (1 Pet 2:24 KJV). He was thus, in life and death, the great Burden-Bearer. In life He took our infirmities and sicknesses in grace in order to remove them. In death He bore our sins in substitution, and was made sin for us by God, when He endured for the glory of God all that was due to us on account of our sins, that He might take them away forever.
There is a great difference between His burden-bearing in life and in death; but still He was in both the Burden-Bearer. And this is the law of Christ: “Bear one another’s burdens,” and so fulfill the law of Him who was the pattern Burden-Bearer. Love was undoubtedly the motive of all He did; for, as the apostle says, He “loved me, and has given Himself for me.” It is certain that we shall never go and take the burdens of our brethrens on ourselves, unless we are under the constraint of the love of Christ.

It is one thing to receive the anointing and another to keep growing on it. There are people who had the anointing, but today, everything has virtually ebbed out. It is possible to connect with the Holy Spirit and to continue to flow in the power of the anointing even at increasing levels. If this is your desire,...More
