Read Galatians 6:2
The word “carry” or “bear” means to support, carry away, bear up under. The word “burden” means a hardship or a tremendous weight. It’s kind of like a super hero flying in at the last second to stop a train falling over the edge of a broken bridge from hitting a little boy down below!
Read the rest of Galatians 6:1-6
On Sunday, Jim listed some qualities that dwell in the heart of a burden bearer.
Having the heart of a burden bearer means to put aside your own desires and needs, listen to the needs of others, and help support the weight they carry.
First Covenant Church is part of the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC), which is a rapidly growing multi-ethnic denomination in the United States and Canada, with ministries on five continents of the world. Founded in 1885 by Swedish immigrants, the ECC values the Bible as the word of God, the gift of God's grace, and an ever-deepening spiritual life that comes through faith with Jesus Christ. We value the importance of extending God's love and compassion to a hurting world, and the strength that comes from unity within diversity.
