Spirit-Led Burden Bearing

August 19, 2018 Preacher: Scott Hollingshead Series: No Other Gospel

Topic: Sin Scripture: Galatians 6:1–6:5

Spirit-led burden bearing

Galatians 6:1-5


BIG IDEA: The Spirit’s work ought to be seen in our humble burden bearing


  1. A word to the restorer


  1. Notice it assumes there will be sin in the body
  2. It’s a Spirit-led loving endeavor to restore the wayward
  3. The warning isn’t to the one who’s sinned but to the restorer

3 descriptions of the restorer: 

  1. Spiritual 
  2. Gentle
  3. Careful


  1. Bear others burdens 



  1. Paul’s assuming Christians will have burdens
  2. God does not intend for us to carry these ‘burdens’ alone- insert spiritual spotter picture
  1. Burden bearing makes us like Jesus


Are you a burden bearer?         


  1. Test your own work
