In the Bible, Paul called on his fellow Christian brothers and sisters to look out for their fellow believers. If they were plagued with sin or overcome by the burdens of life, then Paul urges those who are spiritual to restore such people. This is a prime example of how God wants us to carry ourselves as part of the Body of Christ.
Believers are to serve one another as if we are spotters helping those lifting weights in a gym. When the burdens of life, whether it be physical, relational, or emotional, become too much for a friend to bear, as spotters, we are called to help them lift that weight off their chest.
Carrying the weight of another can take various forms, i.e. making time for someone, providing a listening ear, and most importantly, praying for one another. Praying for others strengthens our bond with that individual, and it also strengthens our relationship with Christ. Max Lucado says it best - “You are never more like Jesus than when you pray for others.” Simply put, carrying another's burden fulfills the law of Christ, and the law of love.
Father, you are an awesome God. I don’t deserve your love and grace but I am so thankful and grateful for it. Please help me fully submit to your authority over my life. Give me the strength to resist the desires of my flesh. Help me to deny myself, and relinquish all that I have, and all that I am, for You. Destroy my attachment to this world so that I can fully rely on you in every situation. In Jesus' name, Amen.
