Gal 6:2 Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
Is there anyone who does not have burdens? You might eye the rich man, who has it all, and you will find him eyeing you and thinking in his heart life was simpler with out all this stuff and stress. You might point at the young, and yet they long for the day when they will be free to run their own life. Where there is a pulse there is a burden. Where there is a heart that beats, that heart knows the heaviness of its burdens. You do not have to go out in search of those who have burdens; you will find them all around you. God does not call me to pine for someone I can help, but I am to seize the opportunity that He has already provided.
A preacher once told me, “Preach to the brokenhearted and you will never want for an audience”
John 13:34-35 “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
There is no doubt that Christ was intending that I be a Bearer of Burdens. How do I love those God has put in my life? I need to love through prayer. I should love through care. I can love by being there. There are many things I can do.
Our problem is almost never that there is no one to love; it is usually the one whom God is calling us to love. To be selective in our love will leave us empty handed. To love as Christ loved, is to know the joy of being used of the Master. May we love God to the point that we can love our enemies, and our friends, and those who cannot figure out which side they are on. May we find the grace to bear one another’s burdens.
