Wesley's Notes for Galatians 6:1


6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in any fault - By surprise, ignorance, or stress of temptation. Ye who are spiritual - Who continue to live and walk by the Spirit. Restore such an one - By reproof, instruction, or exhortation. Every one who can, ought to help herein; only in the spirit of meekness - This is essential to a spiritual man; and in this lies the whole force of the cure. Considering thyself - The plural is beautifully changed into the singular. Let each take heed to himself. Lest thou also be tempted - Temptation easily and swiftly passes from one to another; especially if a man endeavours to cure another without preserving his own meekness.

    I'm reminded of the verse written in the bible, Let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread and drink of that cup. found in 1 Corinthians 11: 28. Brethren if a man be overtaken in fault ye which are spiritual, restore such and one in the spirit of meekness, most of the time we don't handle situations like this in a spiritual matter, here we learned that all roads leads back to God.

    Edward, about Galatians 6:1. Please read 1Timothy 4:1
    A person who is spiritual, born again and a true believer of all 66 books of the Bible will test the spirits using the word of God. Man's thoughts are futile. Read Proverbs 3:5-7

    Edward, God anoints man with His Holy Spirit by Jesus Christ our Lord. You begin seeing the world for what it is instead of what you were taught. Worldly, temporary, sinful things of the flesh lose importance while your love for Christ and fellow man increases. Repentance, obedience and ever increasing faith are essential gifts as well. The old man guided by you must pass away while the Holy Spirit increases in you and becomes your trusted guide with eyes on eternity. Daily prayer and study of God's Word are essential for this transformation. All of the aforementioned are gifts from God. I pray God you be born again! 1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 1 John 2:17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. 2 Corinthians 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal but the things which are not seen are eternal. James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not and it shall be given him.
