Help Us – Week Five

This week, we’re talking about what the Bible calls “restoring” one another (Gal. 6:1-2)

Guiding Question: What do we do when someone close to us chooses to go down a bad path?

Restoration is the goal (Gal. 6:1):

  • Our natural inclination is to do everything except restore someone else because these situations are emotional
  • Keep watch on yourselves, lest you too be tempted
    • This is incredibly important: The word “watch” means to examine
    • These conversations have a way of bringing our own sin up to the surface

The how of restoration (Gal. 6:2):

  • Paul says you restore by taking the complications and the consequences caused by this person’s sin onto yourself (2 Cor 5:17-21)

How did God treat you when you were stuck in sin?

  • He sent his perfect son, Jesus, who had never rebelled against his father, who had never sinned or fallen short

So, when you notice someone is caught in sin, ask yourself…

  • What am I feeling?
  • Step back from all the emotions
  • Is what I’m feeling appropriate?
    • Sorrow is appropriate; anger isn’t
  • Deal with the crud that rises up (remember how Jesus treated you)
  • Go to that person with a genuine longing to restore them to their loving father
  • And when you point out their sin, you say “How can I help?”
