Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman
)If you are looking for a way to carry out YESHUA’S command to love your neighbor, the Apostle Paul has a suggestion in today’s verse, “bear their burdens!”
There are times when everyone struggles under the weight of a heavy burden, and now more than ever, there are lots of people struggling just to survive! As believers we have an obligation to help lift that burden for our fellow brothers and sisters in the LORD! We need to look at YESHUA as our example. He calls to Himself all who are heavy laden and gives them rest. (Matthew 11:28-29)
Because GOD has conformed us to MESSIAH’S likeness, we should imitate His care and concern for those that are in need. Even though we have our own needs, YESHUA tells us in the Word that we can do all things through His strength, including sharing someone else’s adversity!
I can do all things through Messiah who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
Share each other’s burdens and in this way obey the law of MESSIAH. Galatians 6:2
When we’re willing to step out to help another in their time of need, two things happen!
First, the person in need is receiving GOD’S blessings, support and love through you!
Second; we are fulfilling the LORD’S command to love our neighbor.
Let’s do it on purpose, be a blessing today!
Love & Blessings,
