You Belong: Carrying Burdens
Galatians 6:1-3You Belong: Carrying Burdens
This Sunday we wrap up our sermon series called ‘You Belong’ with perhaps the most important aspect of belonging together as a family: bearing up one another’s burdens. We wrap up this series in this way because it is the most intimate, difficult, and rewarding aspect of belonging to a church family. No one desires to grieve and suffer alone, and yet millions do each day. Millions deny the importance of belonging to community partly because our culture often turns a blind eye towards the inevitable reality of suffering and sin. But the Body of Christ calls out a different tune: We bear up one another burdens. We recognize our brokenness. We empathize in the midst of suffering because that is modeling Christ’s definition of love.
