Central Idea: Basically, by restoring those caught in sin and helping those who are overwhelmed you fulfill the law of Christ. When you do this you can measure yourself by the true standard and not simply compare yourself with others. To expound on this: there are two things that need to be done to fulfill the law of Christ 1 - restoring those caught in a sin (without getting caught up yourself) and 2 - bearing each others burdens (these are things which are heavy, hard, arduous, etc. and may or may not be possible to be done without assistance). The basic mindset is that you should not have a high opinion of yourself in and of yourself or in regards to others, but look at how you are fulfilling the law of Christ and set that as the standard. We each have a specific journey marked out for us and it is our duty to run our own race with perserverance. Explanation: There is a lot in this passage differentiating one self from others: There is a call to restore others, but keep yourself pure. There is a bearing of the burdens of others; a not boasting in yourself with regards to others, but by your works and finally an individual load. I like the way I have arced this passage. The one thing that bugs me though is that v.3 starts with a gar/for. It seems like this should make vv.3-5 the ground of vv.1-2, but I just can't see it. To me it seems like we do these things (restore brothers and carry burdens) to fulfill the law of Christ and this is explained in that it takes a change of mind from trying to be better than others to watching yourself to see if you are doing your own part to do what Christ has called you yourself to do. At first I was confused about the boasting issue, but he specifically says not to boast in regards to others but only in regard to yourself, so in that respect it cannot be a bad thing. In fact you can do this boasting without even telling anyone else, it is simply measuring your works against what Christ has called you to do and seeing how you compare. Although, if you actually did this there would not be room for any pride because for the most part there is a vast chasm between the things God calls us to and the things we actually do. I thought it would be interesting to point out the negative commands both stated and implied in this passage: Don't restore brothers harshly Don't fall into the temptations of others Don't be prideful Don't deceive yourself Don't compare yourself to others Questions: I think the hardest verse for me to grasp is verse 3. What does he mean when he says that someone thinks they are something eventhough they are nothing? and how does this tie in with the end of v. 4 about not viewing themselves in relation to others?
