1 aBrethren, even if 1anyone is caught in any trespass, you who are bspiritual, crestore such a one din a spirit of gentleness; each one looking to yourself, so that you too will not be tempted.

2   aBear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill bthe law of Christ.

3   For aif anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself.

4   But each one must aexamine his own work, and then he will have reason for bboasting in regard to himself alone, and not in regard to another.

5   For aeach one will bear his own load.

6 aThe one who is taught bthe word is to share all good things with the one who teaches him.

7   aDo not be deceived, bGod is not mocked; for cwhatever a man sows, this he will also reap.

8   aFor the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap bcorruption, but cthe one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

9   aLet us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we bdo not grow weary.

10   So then, 1awhile we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the bhousehold of cthe faith.

11 See with what large letters I 1am writing to you awith my own hand.

12   Those who desire ato make a good showing in the flesh try to bcompel you to be circumcised, simply so that they cwill not be persecuted 1for the cross of Christ.

13   For those who 1are circumcised do not even akeep 2the Law themselves, but they desire to have you circumcised so that they may bboast in your flesh.

14   But amay it never be that I would boast, bexcept in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, cthrough 1which the world has been crucified to me, and dI to the world.

15   For aneither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, but a bnew 1creation.

16   And those who will 1walk by this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the aIsrael of God.

17 From now on let no one cause trouble for me, for I bear on my body the abrand-marks of Jesus.

18 aThe grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be bwith your spirit, cbrethren. Amen.[1]

I have a heavy burden that the Lord has put on my heart. I’m asking for your prayers that God will give me a answer and make a way. I need prayers for wisdom and strength so that I can truly be able to know God’s will for my life. For many months, I have been under conviction and I have a burning desire to grow closer to Jesus. I ask all of you to remember me and all of those in Christ daily as you pray.

Let us lift each other up in prayer and ask the Lord daily for guidance and help. Thank you for your prayers my friends.

For the benefit of our many new readers, as it says in our About section Apprising Ministries is an online apologetics and discernment ministry extending as a fully integrated auxiliary from Connecticut River Baptist Church (SBC), where I serve as pastor-teacher. And even though this local church is affiliated with the SBC, AM itself is designed as a non-denominational outreach.

The fact is I have no staff to assist me with research, writing, answering email questions, etc. and at this time AM receives no financial assistance at all from any other agencies or churches. Right now AM is still running behind our projected budget for the next couple of months.

Those who have been with me for a while already know how much I absolutely hate discussing funding, but it’s something all ministers must do. And at this time AM doesn’t have any radio program to make appeals from; nor do we have any product to sell, so a work like depends entirely upon the generosity of God’s people.

I’m asking that if you’ve been blessed through the work here that perhaps you might consider helping to support this labor. The truth is, I regularly receive letters from many pastors around the country looking for help discerning issues or asking me to do additional research, and we remain hopeful that a church or two might consider taking on AM as even a small part of their mission giving.

In any event, at this time a gift of any amount—whether one time or on a regular basis—will go a long way toward helping to keep AM available along the Internet Front.
