Finding Freedom to Love


Galatians 5:25 thru 6:1-10

25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.


1Brothers 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. Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else, for each one should carry their own load. Nevertheless, the one who receives instruction in the word should share all good things with their instructor.


Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.


10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.




Cultivating Gospel Relationships


1. Gospel relationships are not competitive!

(v26) “Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.”





2. Gospel relationships entail caring for others!

·         Restore gently (v1)

·         Share burdens (v2)

·         Avoid arrogance (v3-5)

·         Share resources (v6)



3. Gospel relationships are produced by sowing and reaping! (v7-9)

·       Two kinds of sowing: Flesh vs Spirit!

·       Two kinds of reaping: Earthly vs Heavenly!


4. Gospel relationships are vital in the church!

Seize the opportunity!
