SERMON SERIES: Galatians
SERMON TITLE: “A Gentle Mending”
This week, Pastor David continued the "Galatians” sermon series.
- In this passage, Paul reminds us that the Christian life is not meant to be lived in isolation. What does living in “Christian community” look like in your life?
- Describe a time when you or someone you know was “caught in sin.”Explain your reaction(s) in that situation.
- What does a preoccupation with “self” indicate about your spiritual condition? What would indicate that you are walking in the Spirit?

Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor. For each will have to bear his own load. Let the one who is taught the word share all good things with the one who teaches. ~ Galatians 6:1-6
But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve, by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ. ~ 2 Corinthians 11:3
If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. ~ Matthew 18:15-17
How Do You Restore Gently?
Always in relationship.
Always in person.
Always in humility.
