Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2).
The penalty for sin is so severe and the reward for godliness is so great that each Christian is called to help each other so that we all can enjoy Heaven together. The previous verse discusses a brother who is overtaken in sin and the Christian responsibility to help in meekness.
Life sometimes is a burden to bear and we need a helping hand to make it through. Perhaps the temptation caught him unprepared, possibly he blindly stepped into temptation, or possibly his error may have been the way he entered into temptation.
The Gospel is the Law of Christ and we have a responsibility to help each other bear the burdens of life.
