The Ministry of Restoration

Galatians 6:1 

      1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

"He heals the broken in heart and binds up their wounds." psalm 147:3

1. We are introduced to someone who has fallen. 

      Galatians 6:1 1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault...

2. We have someone who hasn't fallen yet 

      Galatians 6:1 " which are spiritual"

3. Don't be mean when you reach out to the fallen. 

      Galatians 6:1 "...restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness"

4. Don't act so pious when you reach out to restore the fallen. 

      Galatians 6:1 "...each one looking to yourself, least you too be tempted."

5. Remember, you are doing what Christ wants you to do. 

      Galatians 6:2 "Bear one another's burdens, and thus fulfill the law of Christ."
