Fulfilling the Law of Christ

by Joel Osteen

Today's Scripture

" Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ" (Galatians 6:2, NIV).

Today's Word


When we live in peace and unity, it pleases God. When we love and serve others, putting their needs above our own, we are honoring Him. When we carry each otherís burdens, we are fulfilling the law of Christ, which is to love others.

What does it mean to carry each otherís burdens? There are many ways to reach out to people and help shoulder their load of life. Just by giving an encouraging word or smile, you can help lighten the load for someone. When you pray and intercede for others in their day of difficulty, you are helping to carry their burdens. Maybe there are other ways to help the people around you. Maybe you can pay for someoneís groceries or give someone cash at the gas pump. Anytime you help others and reach out to those in need, scripture says you are directly lending a hand to God Himself.

Today, look for ways to lighten the load for the people around you. Be a burden lifter. Remember, in Godís kingdom what you sow, you shall reap. When you help others, God promises to repay you. Heíll pour out His victory and blessing upon you all the days of your life!

A Prayer for Today

Heavenly Father, I want to fulfill Your law of love by serving and helping others. Show me how to be a blessing to the people around me so that I can help carry their burdens. In Jesusí Name. Amen.
