I died to the Law through the Law, so that I could live for God. I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. And the life that I now live in my body, I live by faith, indeed, by the faithfulness of God’s Son, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Galatians 2:19–20 (CEB)

Fend for yourself or for others?

Well, it’s a bit of both.

We are called to bear our own load, but also are to “bear one another’s burdens.”

Really, it’s about living out the sacrificial life of love for others.

Paul puts it well: “as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.”

Loving others means helping others, just as Jesus loves and helps us!
