Galatians 5:25-6:10 Reading the Passage

Four Characteristics of the Christ-like Life – Galatians 5:25-6:10

5 (25) If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk in line with the Spirit. (26) Let us not become conceited—provoking each other, envying each other.

6 Brothers, even if a man is caught in the act of committing any trespass, you who are spiritual should restore such a person with a spirit of humility, being on guard so that you also are not tempted. (2) Bear one another’s burdens, and by doing so you will fulfill the law of Christ. (3) If a man has a high regard for himself when he has no reason for such an opinion, he is deceiving himself. (4) But let each one examine his own work; then he will find a reason for confidence in himself alone, and not in comparison to someone else—(5) for each one must bear his own load. (6) He who receives instruction in the word should share all good things with the one who instructs him. (7) Do not be deceived, God cannot be mocked: whatever a man sows, he will also reap. (8) The man who sows to please his sinful nature, shall reap destruction from the sinful nature; but the man who sows to please the Spirit, shall reap eternal life from the Spirit. (9) Let us not become discouraged in doing good, for at the appointed time we will reap, if we do not give up. (10) So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good works for all men, but especially for those who belong to the family of believers.
