its really really hot and sunny in london right now
i was sweating SO MUCH walking back home hahhaha
and i skipped my physics lab today
anyways so i read galatians 6 today
the first part really spoke to me and made me think..
paul tells us in the beginning of this chapter "brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently." as a missions team, it is really important that we try to lead a holy life. but we are only human, and it is likely that we will be tempted and at times we will be caught up in the sinful ways of this world. as a caring team and simply as brothers and sisters in christ, we need to look out for each other and help each other in times of need. also at the reserve, in the midst of the spiritual warfare that we will face, we must work as a team to stay strong. if one part of our team fails, we must work together to bring that part back. however in doing so, we must never forget God. when we're faced with sin, ya we're told to help each other, but we should also rely on God and his power to lead us back away from sin.
then paul continues on to say "carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ." this was a really great reminder for me to not only help those in need, but also to share the hardships they are going through and lighten their load. then i realized that jesus carried our burdens of sin and died for us. and if we are to live a christ-like life, isnt it only natural that we carry each other's burdens? i really thought about this and ya i want to do that for you guys. when you have trouble with missions or school or anything for that matter, i want to be there for you and share the load with you. and i hope all of us will be there for everyone on the team; to share each other's hardships and joy. by doing this, it will build us as a stronger team and we will be able to do the same for the natives and in turn glorifying God. we were made to be loving people, so lets hurt for each other and be happy for each other and.. you know just love one another. hehe.
im excited to read what you guys learned today!
those of you who had exams or anything important, hope it all went well
have a great day tomorrow guys
