Reflections on the Enigma of Galatians 6
I cannot believe for you,
But I can teach you, that you might believe.
I cannot repent for you,
But I can listen and I can pray with you.
I cannot confess Christ for you,
But I must show you my own faith, both by my words and my actions.
I cannot be baptized for you,
But I would rejoice in your salvation, as I do in my own.
I cannot bear your load every hour, every day.
Yet, when I see that it is getting too heavy for you to bear alone,
I must adjust my own load enough so that I might keep you from falling.
