We’ve learned that salvation is an individual thing. The salvation of one does not necessitate the salvation of another. However, that doesn’t mean we are meant to go through life alone. We should live in concert with the church. There are ways we can all serve the church and each other. Serving is one way share life with other believers.
Three ways we are to share our lives with other believers in the church:
Gently restore those who fall into sin (Galatians 6:1). … None of us are perfect and we will each make mistakes and sin. When one of us does mess up, we are to take a redemptive approach and try to keep in the smallest circle possible (unless there are legal matters). Love, forgiveness, and fellowship are powerful tools at our disposal for restoring those who have fallen into sin. However, in attempting to restore one of us, we should be careful not to fall in the same trap ourselves.
Carry each other’s burdens (Galatians 6:2-5). … One way we show our love for another is to help each other. We share our struggles and needs with each other so we can help one another. This is one of the reasons connection groups (Sunday school) is important. It puts us in a group of people similar to us so we can relate to and help each other in life. But there’s also a need to go beyond that connection group and help people in other groups. For example, the elders may need help from some of the younger members with physical tasks and the younger members may need advice from those who have greater life experience. … Paul also issues warnings here. We are to not look down on others because of their burdens. We are also to take responsibility for the burdens we bring on ourselves.
Share financially with those who instruct you in the Word (Galatians 6:6). … We pay those who teach us in school (be it through taxes or private schooling), so why shouldn’t we pay those who also teach us from the Bible?
