Galatians 6:6, Partnership in the Ministry of the Word

In Galatians 5 and 6, Paul has been talking about what it means to walk in the Spirit—to be spiritual. As he’s wrapping up his letter, he says in 6:1-2 that we should minister to others by helping to restore those who have fallen into sin and by carrying one another’s burdens. In 6:10 he says we should do as much as we can to minister to all people, especially believers. Couched in between, in today’s passage (6:6), he says that we must minister to those who minister to us. The worship service today will focus on partnership in the ministry of the Word.
