Scripture

Galatians 6

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How do verses 1-2 instruct us to help keep each other in step with the Spirit? What is the main point in Paul’s instruction on living the Spirit-filled life (verses 7-10)?

Application

How do I react when someone sins–especially against me? Do I harbor bitterness and resentment, or do I try to gently restore that person and help to carry his/her burden? Where in my life do I need to be more careful to “sow” to please the Spirit instead of my sinful nature?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Lord, Keep me from a bitter and unforgiving and arrogant heart. If a brother or sister is caught in a sin, help me to be spiritually mature and gently restore that person. May I ever watch myself, so that I do not think I am above falling into sin as well. Give me a heart that desires to carry my fellow believers’ burdens, so fulfilling the law of Christ. Help me to be willing to carry my own load, as well, so that I do not become spiritually lazy. Father, keep me from becoming deceived, and help me to remember that I will reap what I sow. Therefore, may I sow to please Your Spirit, and not my sinful nature. I thank You that all true believers in Christ die to the sinful nature, which reaps destruction, and sow to please the Spirit, reaping eternal life. Help me never to become weary in doing good, for I believe Your promise that, if I do not give up, at the proper time I will reap a great harvest. Therefore, as I have opportunity, may I do good to all people, especially those who belong to the family of believers. May I never boast except in the cross of my Lord Jesus Christ, and may His grace be with my spirit. I ask this in His Name, Amen!

Pray to BLESS!

One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)
