"Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ."
This is another verse that I love so much, since it has to do with relationships especially in the body of Christ. If we are part of this body, we gave to fulfill His law.
First of all, what is His law? We know that Jesus didn't come to destroy the law but to fulfill it. The one thing Jesus did differently was to show us how to fulfill the law, instead of just talking about it
like the great personalities at that time, nd encourage His disciples to do do the same. In John 13, Jesus says *Love one another as I have loved you..." In the end, fulfilling the law of God stand in love.
This is what is asked of us as the body of Christ, to love one another and especially those who are in the body of Christ. The way we show love is by getting involved in the lives of others and prove it by our actions that we have a different love than the world--not just for ourselves, but also for the ones God loves. Many times, this kind of love is sacrificial, putting the interests of others above our own and trying to save and restore what has been damaged, if it goes that far. We all have problems and know how it feels to go through them, just as we know people who have similar problems and the help they could use to get past them
Another thing Jesus said was "Do to others as you would have others do to you". Maybe some of us were not privileged enough to have someone help us through our difficult times, but this should not stop us to help others. One thing I have found is that by helping others it is possible to learn things about yourself that you never realized, and at the same time get a different perspective on people and what it truly means to love them.
