Galatians 6:1 (NLT)
1 Dear brothers and sisters, if another believer is overcome by some sin, you who are godly should gently and humbly help that person back onto the right path. And be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself.

This message from the Apostle Paul is about grace which should be extended to a Christian who has fallen into sin. Those in the church who have demonstrated their own godly behavior should humbly help and gently lead the person away from the sin. They should be strong enough in their faith that they too do not succumb to the temptation for which they are trying to assist.

�Becoming the first man to climb Mt. Everest proved to be a dangerous adventure for Sir Edmund Hillary. After scaling the mountain Hillary lost his footing on the way down, but his Sherpa guide, Tenzing Norgay, held the line taut and kept Hillary from falling by digging his axe into the ice. Tenzing later refused special credit for saving Hillary�s life by saying �Mountain climbers always help each other.�� (Today in the Word, MBI, October, 1991, p. 11) As Christians we should be willing to reach out and keep another brother or sister in Christ from falling further into sin. Our first reaction should not be one of judgment, but of a desire to help the person overcome their problem. For if we push a person away from the church without helping them they become even more bitter and wonder if there really is such a thing as mercy and grace.
