Prayer Corner

This week meditate on . . .  Galatians 6:1-3  (Part 1)

“Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently.  But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.  If anyone thinks they are something when they are not, they deceive themselves.”  (NIV)

The body of Christ, the Church, functions only when the members work together for the common good.  Do you know someone who needs help or a word of correction or encouragement?  With love, humbly and gently reach out to that person.
