Edifier du Jour-Galatians 6:1-5(NASB)
1 Brethren, even if anyone is caught in any trespass, you who are spiritual, restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; each one looking to yourself, so that you too will not be tempted. 2 Bear one another's burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ. 3 For if anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself. 4 But each one must examine his own work, and then he will have reason for boasting in regard to himself alone, and not in regard to another. 5 For each one will bear his own load.
We're not good as Lone Ranger Christians. When we have a brother in Christ that can help us bear our burdens, our burdens get lightened. I'm not sure if this is going to continue when we climb down from the mountaintop of a retreat, but I'm seeing a lot of guys have burdens lifted this weekend. The trick to that kind of brotherhood (or siblinghood to extend this to everyone) is to learn how to do this 24/7/365. It's easy to have a prayer session at a retreat or to have a killer alter call to pray through things, but to be able to have people to lean on day-by-day is hard.
