(1-10) Bear One Another’s Burdens
Followers of Jesus the Christ must bear the burdens of others. Doing so means that we must restore those who may have fallen in a spirit of gentleness while not thinking of ourselves as better than others. Those who know the Word ought to be generous, do good, and sow the Word in the lives of others. We are to do good works to everyone and never grow weary of doing good works. We will reap eternal blessings, if we do not give up.
(11-18) Final Warning and Benediction
Paul refuses to boast in anything or anyone except the cross of Christ. The cross has crucified Paul to the world and has crucified the world to Paul. The cross has made Paul a new creation. The cross has the same power over us today.
