Beloved, we are called to do different things to advance God’s kingdom agenda, but we are all equally called to help those who can’t help themselves. Paul put it this way in Galatians 6:2, “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”
When I think of all of the burdens people are facing in our world today there’s no question that we need to at a minimum encourage each other! We need community now more than ever before!
God never intended for us to plow through life solo. He made us for community, one body through one Spirit, serving one Lord with all of our own talents and gifts.
That being said, I want to encourage you to search for ways you can help bear someone’s burden. How can you show gentleness and love to someone in need? It doesn’t have to be complicated or extreme. Sometimes all we need is someone to say, “I see you, and I care.”
So my brothers and sisters, will you accept the challenge to seek out community and fellowship on a deeper level? It’s incumbent on us to carry each other’s burdens in love (Eph 4:1-3)!
