THE EPISTLE OF PAUL
E. Restoring the Fallen One
in a Spirit of Meekness
1 Brothers, even if a man is overtaken in some offense, you who are 1aspiritual brestore such a one in a 2cspirit of dmeekness, looking to yourself lest you also be etempted.
F. Completely Fulfilling the Law of Christ
2 Bear one another's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the 1alaw of Christ completely.
3 For if anyone 1athinks he is something when he is nothing, he bdeceives himself.
4 But let each man aprove his own work, and then he will have his boast in regard to himself alone and not in regard to another.
5 For each one shall bear his own load.
6 But let him who is instructed in the word ashare in all 1good things with him who instructs.
G. Sowing Not unto the Flesh
but unto the Spirit
7 Do not be 1adeceived: God is not bmocked; for whatever a man csows, this he will also reap.
8 For he who sows 1unto his own 2aflesh will breap 3ccorruption of the flesh, but he who dsows 1unto the 2eSpirit will fof the Spirit reap 3geternal life.
9 And let us anot lose heart in doing what is good, for in the proper season we will reap if we 1do not bfaint.
10 So then, as we have the opportunity, let us do what is 1agood toward all, but especially toward those of the 2bhousehold of the 3cfaith.
H. Having Been Crucified
to the Religious World
to Live a New Creation
11 See with what 1large letters I have written to you with my aown hand.
12 As many as desire to make a 1good show 2in the flesh, these compel you to be acircumcised, but only that they may not be bpersecuted for the ccross of Christ.
13 For neither do they that become circumcised akeep the law themselves, but they desire you to be circumcised that they may boast bin your flesh.
14 But far be it from me to aboast except in the 1bcross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through 2whom the 3world has been ccrucified to me and I to the world.
15 For neither is 1acircumcision anything nor uncircumcision, but a 1bnew creation is what matters.
16 And as many as 1walk by this 2arule, 3bpeace be upon them and mercy, even upon the 4cIsrael of God.
I. Bearing the Brands of Jesus
17 Henceforth let no one trouble me, for I bear in my body the 1abrands of Jesus.
IV. Conclusion --
The Grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ
Being with Our Spirit
18 The 1agrace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your 2spirit, 3bbrothers. Amen.
