Bearing your burden

Mat 23:2  Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:
Mat 23:3  All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.
Mat 23:4  For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. 
Gal 6:1  Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
Gal 6:2  Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
Gal 6:3  For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.
Gal 6:4  But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
Gal 6:5  For every man shall bear his own burden.
For those under a heavy burden I point you to Jesus who cares for you and carries your burdens. I offer my love and sympathy, pointing you to Jesus. The Pharisees knew the word, but did not do anything to help anyone. In truth we often speak words to encourage others but in the end we must bear our own burden. We are to give it to Christ Jesus. There is one intercessor between man and God; Jesus our advocate and Great High Priest. We cannot work to please him, but we are to trust in him. He is our burden bearer and deliverer. Thank you Jesus.

Eph 2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Eph 2:9  Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Eph 2:10  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.  

Walk on, bearing your cross, trusting and obeying him.
