The Responsibility of Restoration

Introduction:  What happens when a brother or sister in the Lord falls by the wayside?  How are God’s people supposed to react?  What is the main goal of the believer pertaining to the fallen brother or sister?

  1. THE FALL (Galatians 6:1)

      1. Can be a sin
      2. Can be a crime
      3. Can be guilt
      4. Can be a weakness
    3. The Power of Temptation (Hebrews 11:32-38; Hebrews 11:37)
