Galatians 6:1-2 “Brethren, if a man be over taken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such
an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Bear ye one
another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.”

Now more than ever, we live in a world where the opportunities to sin are so prevalent that
they are virtually inescapable. We are beset by them on every hand. Those of us who are
redeemed by the Lord Jesus can be snared by sins temptations as well, for we still live in this
body of flesh, even though we have new life in the Spirit. That is why close Christian
relationships are more important than ever before. We must not only depend on the Lord but
on each other as well.

As Christians we are to look out for, and extend a helping hand to, our fellow believers,
because we, too, know what it is like to be tempted, and to lose the battle with the “lust of the
eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life.” We have all felt the pangs of guilt, and the
remorse that sin brings under the convection of the Holy Spirit. We have all longed for a
helping hand, a light in the dark, the love and care of a good friend that would help lead us
back to the path of righteousness.

There is a qualification and some other attributes for being a Christian caregiver. You must be
spiritual, in other words, strong in the Lord.
Romans 15:1 “We then that are strong ought to
bare the infirmities of the weak…”
And how are we to do it? We are to do it in meekness,
gentleness, kindness and humility; because Satan and temptations are lurking behind every
corner, and you may be the next one he has in his sights.

John 13:34 “A new commandment I give unto you, that you love one another; as I have loved
you…”
