Bearing Burdens
1Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught doing something wrong, you who are directed by the Ruach, restore such a person in a spirit of gentleness—looking closely at yourself so you are not tempted also.
2Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you fulfill the Torah of Messiah.
3For if anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he is fooling himself.
4Rather let each one examine his own work. Then he will have pride in himself alone and not in comparison to anyone else.
5For each one will carry his own load.
6Now let the one who is taught the word share all good things with his teacher.
7Do not be deceived—God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows, that he also shall reap.
8For the one who sows in the flesh will reap corruption from the flesh. But the one who sows in the Ruach will reap from the Ruach eternal life.
9So let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we don’t give up.
10Therefore, whenever we have an opportunity, let us do good toward all—especially those who belong to the household of faith.
Living under God’s Favor
11Notice the large letters—I am writing to you with my own hand.
12Those wanting to look good outwardly are trying to force you to be circumcised—only so they will not be persecuted for the cross of Messiah.
13For not even the circumcised keep Torah themselves. Yet they want to have you circumcised so that they may boast about your flesh.
14But may I never boast—except in the cross of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah. Through Him the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
15For neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything—but only a new creation.
16Now as many as live by this rule—shalom and mercy on them and on the Israel of God.
17From now on let no one make trouble for me, for I bear on my body the scars of Yeshua.
18The grace of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah be with your spirit, brothers and sisters. Amen.
